Progression of Planting the Spring Grains (2022)

Goodness, last year I put the first seeds into the ground on the 4th!   Today is the 16th, I am just getting started!   It's been so 'wet'. A few days ago, I flail mowed the residue from some of last year's corn

Today, I gave it a light tilling. I really would have like to have done that 2 weeks ago. 

April 27th

2nd tilling, decay of the plant residue is looking good.  Not too many 'weeds with strong roots' left.

April 30th

Power harrowed in the morning, then raked to prepare the seed bed.  I'm going to forgo my scribing of exact lines for row spacing, and use the wheel hoe and wing it to save a little bit of time.

All the rain has delayed planting several times.

 Put many new varieties into the ground and then it rained 0.11 inches last night.
