Thanks for the video. Our soil conditions around Easter were perfect, so we got going. As with most springs, especially in the river bottoms, we are usually too wet early on. This year, the warm temps and wind let us get into our wetter fields first and they worked like a garden. Then a few days later we got 2.5" of rain over a couple days---2 more inches than forecasted. That kind of hurts even emergence as standing water drains off and the soil dries unevenly. Our theory is when the soil works good, get it planted. It's been hit and miss ever since due to rains every few days. Short version: we do what we can, but the weather bats last, and in the end we hope to get a stand! Good video! Looking forward to how your plot does.
