a bit worried
« on: June 06, 2013, 11:18:43 PM »
So I planted 25# of power plant yesterday...first time use but have broad cast planted soybeans many time before....The rains started at 11PM that night...rained hard on and off until just now....at 4pm I checked the plot...beans are now all laying on top of very wet soil... @--0--0117 :-[

So for those of you that have experience with PP...how do you think it will do? More rain due next 3 days...plots on a slight slope

Went out to check the plot again...stopped raining for a whole half hour..by the time I hit the kitchen door I was soaked again...any ways, the beans are still there...and on top of soil..but I'm not sure there is any sunflower seeds they didn't find and break open  :-\
I had to cut two wrens out of my garden bird netting...the plot lines the garden...little things were still alive...bit for my efforts...but I felt bad...any how I'm think they are the seed eaters...hhhhmmmm ##$%#1119

When it quits and gets solid just enough take a small cultipacker over it to help seed them. Nature will takes it's course anyway if they are not picked up by animals.

We have rain coming for the next two days and it's still raining now...that is not an option...the seed is already too soft besides the fact the ground is so wet one step on the plot put me ankle deep...Now the weather guy is spot on...every rain storm before this went around us....geezzzz...Oh well at least I only planted half of it...the lower plot can just wait for the dry up....

I'm ready for some dry sunny weather here in the northern part of the state also, one corner of our veggie garden is growing green pond scum from all the rain and standing water. The peas that are up seem to be happy, but got seeds there that have not sported and I really don't expect them to
