Labor day weekend they will be broke and limed and fertilized and waiting for seed. I'm gonna try to wait on a good rain ,.. but i'm very busy with our new child and everything else. I have no choice but to do the best i can this year,.. but it must be done.

BSK,.. keep us posted as much as possible on forecast models. I know we all would very much appreciate it.

So far no rain in the 10-day forecast models. And see I see no indications this pattern is going to change anytime soon.

If the rain don't come the planting won't get done.

I'll be planting the most literally minutes and hours before a good rain, and some even during. My plan is to have as much acreage ready to plant as possible, then wait.


That's what I'm planning on doing but the radar this year has shown huge blotches of rain headed right to us and then when it gets close it splits and goes around us. So I might just throw a big trash bag over my hopper and spread in the rain.

One problem you'll run into if you plant very long in a steady rain:
The high humidity is going to get your seed wet.
Usually, I'm limited by this as too just how long I can keep at it.
