I overseeded my greens with some wheat and a tickle of triple 10 last evening. The soil was moist so any small amount of rain is good enough!

The upside is that, if your area received a lot of rain over the last week like many areas did, the soil has absorbed a lot of water. The surface may dry out and form a crust, but I don't think root-zone soil moisture will be a problem for some time.



Got about half of mine in friday and with good ground moisture not concerned about rain for awhile . I will plant the rest asap and feel good about germination and growth even with no rain for awhile . July and August were above normal rain and great ground moisture for this time of year , best in years .

Got everything out about 18:00 last night. Got a light rain a couple hours ago, but may not be enough. Hoping this edge will dip ever so slightly south of I-81 and hit me.

We planted this am with the ground damp. Was loads of fun with it being gumbo mud.But on the up side as wet as the ground was im sure 80 % of it will sprout before it gets eaten by the 200 doves we saw.

Didn't make it. I'm going to till this weekend then again during the week then sit back and wait. The past few years I've planted in mid-October with fine results, so I'm not too panicked yet. This past week was perfect, though.

Although there is a moderate chance of light showers Saturday, it looks like the next substantial rain won't get here until the following Thursday (9/20).

I know that you look at several different models to make your predictions, but it's amazing how Accuweather's long range forecast seems to be spot on here lately. I've gotten where I don't pay any attention to the Weather Channel anymore...
