Things just went bad after the spraying
No rain for 7 weeks i just burned down
Finally had a good chance for rain got some beans & Milo seed in the ground
Got a 6" rain and drowned them out
Im starting to feel like a farmer
I did get 2 mixed plots in the ground the last 2 weeks that have caught some small rains and look promising
I have round up on the Alfalfa plot for a fall replant
We did pick up a old 6ft grove roller just for the asking .. its just like a cultipacker with out the notches and the small seed really seams to like it
I have a lot of ground ready and im just waiting for the rains to come back
Glad to be back

Nice to hear back Delbert, weather man its either perfect or a killer. Son is testing a small plot in my garden, same stuff he planted in PA. Shot Plot has about 30% clover and rye grass but no till and growing pretty well in the garden. May just go to something like this if it grows in PA.

If we could have 1/2 your rain delbert. I have 3/4"cracks in my yard and Lake Erie is 50 yds away! Can't set up an intake system as road separates the lake and me.

That rain never came
WE planted 2 plots 1 1/2 acres over the holiday weekend in the dry dirt and grove rolled them in .
We got the perfect slow rainy day yesterday and to day lucky
I have my alfalfa plot rolled and ready ,I didn't want to plant that with out the moisture, When the rain stops im going to jump in and scratch it ,seed it , and hit it with the grove roller
