    These are in our food plot and the deer are nailing both, please tell me the first is chicory.
    Sorry the pic is blurry, had my sunglasses on and couldn’t see too well.

    The first one is chicory. Can't see the second well enough to say for certain.

    Chicory doesn't get the credit it deserves. It retains its palatability regardless of how big it grows. They even eat the flowers.

    They love the flowers on chicory, and it really shines during the dry heat of summer. Great stuff!

    I looked again at that other plant and believe it is common purslane. That makes sense for two reasons. First, it grows well in a drought. Second, deer like it pretty well.

    I can just see the second one clear enough to not be sure that it isn't purslane.
