I have had AWP survive come spring here and even flower before and I have even had turnips survive and bolt, flower and produce seed before. My winters will get cold, but I think we average like 18" of snow annually. I am curious as to what the AWP does come spring as I have never planted it like this (in rows with a planter for a solid population). I typically plant beans or corn in the spring and then overseed turnips and wheat or rye...but my corn planting was a flop this year. As such I thought/hoped the addition of a good dose of AWP would put the deer in the plots during hunting season....but we didn't really see that in November. They seem to have found it come December...but we are pretty much done hunting now.
