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"!

The rain in August is not the problem it the lack of rain in Sept. and the plot dries up and dies that is the problem.

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.

Generally Sept is drier than August so the plant sprouted from the rain if planted in August and drie up and die from the dry in Sept. Not always the case. Last year I planted the last week of August but Sept. brought suficent rain to keep it from drying up. The year before I planted in early Sept. it gerninated then dried up and died and had to replant at the first of oct. It can be a crap shoot. I will get everything ready ie.lime, fertilizer, disking, dragging, aquire seed, then watch the long term forecasts like a hawk to plan a plant date. Sometime you guess right sometimes not.
