My dad finished planting one of the 3.5 acre field today. We put out 16-20-0 fertilizer at a rate of 75lbs/acre and put out oats, wheat and elbon rye at a rate of 150lbs/acre. We seeded fairly heavily because when we broacast we lose some to birds. After seeding and fertilizing we drug the entire field. The weather forecast shows 30% chance of rain on monday, 80% Tuesday-Thursday and a 60% chance on Friday. They are forecasting anywhere from 2 to 4-inches. Let's hope they are right. Bring on the rain...

Here's a picture of the field:

We will plant the other 2-acre field and the 1.5-acre field this next weekend. We're ready for bow season.

I hope to have some trail camera pictures to post up this weekend.
