Usually in my area of Sumner County the last 2 weeks of the month have been wet. So I'm going to plant the 18th or 19th and do the "dance"!

When soil moisture is adequate. Otherwise all that seed will be wasted. Even if it means waiting until mid-October, I will wait until there is adequate soil moisture.

Like BSK said it all depends on soil moisture. The past 2 seasons I've waited until early to mid October before planting. I just wait for a good chance of approaching rain and try to plant within 24 hours of it arriving.

I may regret it if it burns up in Sept. but I put out 4 acres of soy beans, red ripper peas, sunflowers, and sorghum on Saturday July 21st. I also put out a clover and chicory mix in one small 1/2 acre corner. It has rained 6 out of the ten days since planting and most rains were HEAVY and I have beans up to about 4" tall already. I will try and post some pics soon.
