I was wondering that. Wondering if all would be non-existent because of the competition and not grow at all or if by putting more nitrogen on it they would get the nitrogen they need and grow some bulbs.
I agree with your assessment of things always breaking Skip. I always know something will break and wonder what it will be. They are in and pulled out of the field at 10:00. I made sure we did a slow cultipacking with the rain coming.
I'm in Waukon. We've had some rain but only a inch or two. Main reason I would like them in now is precisely like you mentioned that usually the water shuts off right after I plant them late July. I don't want to have them mature too early and go to mush on me either.
I know that brassica plots should be in by the 29th of July. Being in far Northeast Iowa would it be okay to put them in now? I know we are about a week or two ahead of Southern Iowa as far as the first frost. Looks like a good rain coming the next couple of days and then nothing afterwards...
Well the rye, oats and peas are in and rain is plentiful. Only casualty is I didn’t check my bag early enough and Welters sent me someone else’s order. I didn’t get my clover and turnips. So scratch them and frost seed in spring or reorder and put down in a week or two?
In doing rye, oats, peas, radishes and clover how important are the radishes? With my turnips/radishes close by I don't see any advantage having them. I also don't think they will get very big to actually make a difference? Thoughts?
A week ago Sunday they had almost an inch of rain, none since. Brought the cultipacker back to the house at 10 Saturday night after last pass after seeding it. Yes, we plowed it up this time and smoothed it out with the disc. It really needed it because we haven't done it in the last 10 years...
