Planted the lease already, but I can't plant at home because I live on Sahara Mountain I guess. I've got a 1/3 acre spot tilled and limed. If I spray the thing with my 25gal motorized sprayer it'll probably take 4 to 6 hours of standing around out there. The spots I've sprayed so far are pure dust once you get a few centimeters down. Is this a waste or will this process tide the seeds over until 2008 when it rains? I need to get this stuff planted soon, especially since I have the next few days off.

If you don't have adequate soil moisture, DON'T PLANT.

Here's any easy way to see if you have adequate soil moisture:

Scrape away the top inch of soil. Get a handful of loose soil from 2 to 3 inches deep. Squeeze the loose soil in your hand. Open your hand. If the soil HAS NOT packed into a ball and stays that way--if it crumbles out of the ball--you do NOT have adequate soil moisture.

Thanks, I figured that was the right answer but I'm coming down with "the fever" and needed someone to talk me out of planting.

We finally got some good substantial rain last night. I could here it hitting the roof last night and I just smiled. I hope you get the rain you need.
