Are you meaning to grow the root vegetable turnip to feed to the deer? I have never heard of this. They can have all mine ... that's one of two vegetables that I hate. The other is rutabagas.

Sorry when I saw post I thought you were talking about something else brown and blob like. See link that suggests not only turnips but other types of brassicas for deer.

Here is a link that might be useful: Deer turnips

I plant lots of "whitetail gardens" throughout the growing season. I use a blend of rutabagas, white egg turnips, purple top white globe turnips and gold ball turnips. I plant them shallow in the soil so they grow primarily above ground for easier access by deer in the autumn and winter. I also plant some broccoli and brussel sprouts too. Neat to have humans and wildlife eat from the same garden. :)
