My son-in-law read in the Georgia Outdoor News magazine that the Daikon Radish was good for planting in deer plots. He planted this small plot on the edge of one of his pecan orchards. We often saw deer in the orchard at night but as far as we could tell the deer never touched the radishes. I pulled a few of the stalks and there were radishes over a foot long on the end.
I didn't like the taste of the radishes so I guess the deer didn't either. I've sure enjoyed the flowers though. The colors ranged from plain white with yellow centers to these with a dab of purple on them.

On August 21,1995 while on a flight from Atlanta to Biloxi, Atantic Southeast Airlines Flight 529 crashed in a field in the Burwell Community near Carrollton GA. There were 10 fatalities including one who died 4 months after the crash. The people of the Burwell Community errected this monument behind the Shiloh United Methodist Church.. I've always regretted that I didn't take a picture of the church and will probably never be able to go back. This is not my original post. The pictures had vanished for some reason and while trying to redo the post I accidentally deleted it. Since people still come here on a search to see this I am reposting. I hate that I lost the comments .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_Southeast_Airlines_Flight_529
