I’m Michael. But I’m changed my recommendation because of the other Michael that’s coming. I was gonna say wait. I’m waiting now. Maybe you will be ok. If it comes in here and rains 8-12” then all bets are off. As long as it doesn’t wash I think you will be ok. I thought about planting today but I am short on help and had to go to my “real job”. Hopefully I will be able to plant next week but it’s possible that if we get enough rain plus a little behind it that I won’t be able to get in the field for a month. Oh well, can’t control the weather. Better to embrace it and roll with it.
I’m hedging. I planted about 1/4 of what I intend to plant total yesterday. Hopefully, after the rain, I can get in early next week and drill about 10-12 acres of rye. JMJ, you must be close to Cordele or Vienna. I’m about 30 miles SW of Macon, in Taylor County. I’m at my “real job” today, too, else I would probably be planting today.
I’m about 45 miles east of Cordele. Dodge County. Smack dab in the middle of Eastman, Milan, Rhine and Chauncey.
I’ve got a food plot that I fixed for my kids that’s in a really really wet place. I planted it today. Didn’t even cover it up. Just scattered it on top of harrowed dirt. It may all wind up in the branch. Figured with the amount of rain we’ve got coming I’d experiment a little. I also know it was now or never. It won’t dry out again after this until next summer.
