All Done

Spent the last few days getting seed in the ground. It's all done now, if we get some rain. Who else has theirs planted?

I like to plant early in October, but had good equipment available this weekend, so i figured I would be dumb not to take advantage of the help. We did in 2 days what normally takes me a full week, or more by myself.

Finished planting every seed I had today, Glenn. Sure feels good to get it done ahead of the rain this week.

My Austrian Winter Peas are growing fast, with some of them 8 inches tall already. They were planted exactly two weekds ago during TS Lee's rain but no rain since. The Bob Oats are nice, thick, and green. The Elbon Rye is also growing well but is not as thick. All of those are really doing nicely.

The Winter Wheat planted one week ago has germinated in some areas but needs rain. I planted the rest of the Winter Wheat today.

The purple hull peas are at the two leaf stage but have the Austrian winter peas as a cover crop so they might not get eaten by the deer too quickly. I have not yet seen any sunflowers germinating. A few acorns are just starting to fall so everything is on schedule to be in good shape by opening day.

Looking at the radar I feel very good about our decission to go ahead and plant. I think we will get the rain we need, or at least hope so. The only thing that concerns me is the reports of army worms around the area.

We did something this year I have never done before that one of my uncles who farms a couple thousand acres told me to do years ago. A month ago we went in and disced most of our plots. Apparently all the rain from TS Lee was absorbed into the soil. We lightly went over them again Friday and had good moisture to plant in. The ones that we did not get to earlier were nothing but dust after turning them over. I guess even with all that rain most of it ran off of them.

He told me to break it up good and deep, wait until after a good rain, then disc again lightly and plant. It sure seems to have worked, so that will become a regular habit for me in the future. Do any of you do this? We actually did it only to make things easier to break up like we want it when it was time to plant. I guess being lazy and trying to cheat a little finally paid off for me.

We always try to disc deep early and let it sit .. we also apply some fertilizer and lime at that time and give it a chance to get watered in before we plant.Has always worked well for us .

Planted last weekend and we have some fuzzy green stuff peaking out even before this rain. Finally timed it right. Last year we had to throw seeds three times

Chad, I use one some, but with 18 plots to plant I don't have the time to do them all each year. An 1,100 pound disc cuts pretty good though.
