    Man it has been struggle, after the first week of dry weather in forever, I made a push to plant the plots yesterday,
    the bottom ground worked as tough as it ever has it is for sure going to have to have a shower of rain to come up
    in the hills I mixed 15 pounds of corn to 200 pounds of rr beans, I also mowed my clover for the first time I would say normally I would have mowed it twice by now, I have one plot of clover that needs to be worked up probably will put into a fall plot this fall, then back to beans then back to clover[​IMG]

    [​IMG] the hill ground plots ground worked good, and I think they will come without a rain,
    you might notice a couple of green strips in one of the plots
    those are volunteer beans I left for a experiment, they look pretty good,
    I started about 7 the wife came up and fixed breakfast
    lunch and we bar b q steak at the farm for supper doesnt get any better than that,

    It looks good Mark. This is late for you to get your plots out. We actually are only one day behind ya this year. We got all but one of ours done today. The one that is left isn't a hunting plot and will get a fall mix this year. Now weekend after next if the weather is ok we get the no-till drill and do our cash crop and cp33's and we are done with everything.

    Im hoping rat that is the good stuff, the bottom ground was rough, I have about half that worked about as good as it could and 1/4 that was so so, and 1/4 that wasnt very good at all, but like my dad always says it wont grow in the sack,
    a shower of rain probably would do me some good Monday
    I planted 11 bags of seed, yesterday, its up to mother nature ,

    Henry getting a nice gentle shower, should be just right
    so far, wont pack the really loose ground and should help the cloddy ground,:2thumbsup: '
    I forgot to add earlier I crossed out my rows this year to get some extra seed in the plot since my old planter is on 40 inch rows guess we will see how it goes

    Canopies alittle slow in coming on those 40 inch rows I bet. Did you split rows on the second pass or plant across the other rows???? I've often thought about drilling wheat at half rate and drilling both directions in the field to see if it would help suppress weeds any better. The sunlight shining down those rows has to help weeds get a foot hold.

    Henry I planted accross the rows, I have done it before and had some luck but never done it on the scale I did it this time, I planted 11 bags of beans on probably 8 acres
    so about 70 lbs per acre , I had another plot that I might still do I sowed some clover in this Feb it is coming but it got really wet in there this spring and I think washed some of the seed when it was frozen, so if it drys out I might put in a late plot of beans might plant them as late as the end of June, if the clover thickens up I will just leave it,
