We have had almost no rain for a couple of weeks now and only sprinkles tonight. I believe we need to wait for the heat wave to leave and some decent rain fall to come before we do anything serious.

Rico,

I wouldn't recommend planting until soil moisture improves significantly, even if that means not planting until mid-October. I will wait that long if that's what it takes. Planting into dry soil means you just threw all your seed away and you'll have to buy it all again.

I'm waiting for the moisture. Otherwise it's just expensive bird feed.

good advise
Even if youre worried about spooking the deer in the area by planting during season I wouldn't, it doesn't bother them in the least + the plants are most atractive to the deer when they first sprout up . I have my soil tilled and ready now so when it rains it will soak up every drop .I'm figuring on late sept before I can plant, but it all depends on the rain. good luck

Although I can get to my property fairly frequently, I'm probably going to do something similar. I'm going to broadcast a lot of cheap wheat seed, and if it gets rained on and grows, great. If not, well I'm not out much monetarily. If the wheat lives, I can always add more and different seeds to the plots once rains become more regular. I've already burned down my plots with Gly 4.

Late summer and early fall are the time to plant cereal grains. They are a fall/winter/spring plant.

However, unless you have adequate soil moisture when planting, you are throwing your moeyy away. The plants will not germinate or grow.

I'm going to watch the weather closely, and if it looks like we might get rain this weekend, I'll take the chance with winter wheat late in the week because it is so cheap (generally no more than $15 for 100 pounds of seed). A planting "failure would cost that much. But I will wait with the more expensive plants until we've had adequate rainfall.
