I planted rape, turnips, and winter wheat in all of my plots. I figure the wheat will pop up first and maybe the deer won't eat up all of the rest before it has a chance to grow. Same goes for my clover and chickory plot. I threw down some wheat on them also. Come spring time, I'll just run over the wheat in my clover plot with my trail mower set real high.

The ryegrass in that easy plot mixture is terrible.

If they are both 1/2 spots ,.. it wouldn't hurt to throw out 25 lbs in each.

Go to your local coop and buy winter wheat, dwarf essex rape and some buck forage oats. More bang for your buck with better results. You could also drop in some ladino or any white clover variety. If you look at the rye seed % on your store bought mix you will notice it is more than 50 %. But any wheat or oat added wouldn't hurt a thing.
