Looks good to me. Rye doesn't like going in too deep.

I have had good luck with ryegrass just discing once, spreading the seed/fertilizer, then dragging with an old tire drag, just to give some firm seed/soil contact.

If you had it last year and had let it go to head, don't have to do anything. It will reproduce itself. Otherwise what others said works fine.

Either your disc, or your ground is better than mine.

I've said this before, rye is not at all the same thing as ryegrass.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

Yeah but I'm Aussie and we shorten everything even if it makes no sense.

We differentiate it as perennial ryegrass and annual rye and then the Italian rye which will go 2 seasons and the annuals are broken down into the diploid and tetraploid ryes with double the chromosomes. I like to put in a diploid rye each autumn as it is finer stem and easier to dry for hay when I bale it in spring.

Yeah on that. The guy who does the crossword puzzles for Dell or PennyPress is either of Aussie or Brit. origin. You can really tell when he backs himself into a corner as he comes up with the craziest answers to some simplistic questions, and a lot of "native" colloquialisms . One example is the word "Yen" meaning a yearning....figured that one out after I backed into it from the cross answers.

I'd say Brit, never heard yen around these parts.

5 inches this week 2.5 last night.
My rye grass seed is endangered of drowning. I have spent most of my time now hunting in a slicker suit.
