Must be not as hardy as the normally variety’s. Would get a little winter kill on hill tops but nothing that made a diff

I talked to Steve Simon (Simon innovations) the other day and he said they just received 2" of rain and forecast for rain all week with a mix of snow. He is south of London ON. That really sucks. I thought we were going to be stupid early here a month ago but it turned cool and there is not much happening yet. Only one guy seeding as far as i know buy he is a BTO and has to start extra early to get it all in. Snowed last night with forecast highs in the single digits and freezing most nights. Hopefully seeding can get started in general in the next week to 10 days. Fingers crossed.

Seeding will be at a minimum (read zero) today.
5% in maybe, not all even started.

Lots of guys seeding around Dawson Creek. I heard a few have finished peas and started wheat. Our ground is 2 degrees 2” down so I’m waiting till the frost is out. We need a day or 2 of 15 + to get things moving. 12 with the sun shining is all we’ve been getting lately.

Seeding conditions are almost ideal here, except for the wind and the temperature. We started wheat on the 24th, currently about 15% completed considering all crops to go in.

I gave the exchequer a half hour driving refresher course this morning, so hopefully I’ll be enjoying the day off. Been thinking though, maybe I shouldn’t have left him with all of those electronic boundaries set to UNLIMITED!

Oh well, it might make a great coffee shop story.

About 8" snow on the ground now, over 13" closer to Red Deer. See attached forecast to guess when field work will resume. I did see a couple of neighbors who forgot where we live, and what our climate is, and started seeding already. It is looking like May 10 start as usual. This is at least very much needed moisture, scary to be this dry at this time of year.

Guess I forget where I live as started seeding in Central AB this last wk about 1 wk ahead of "normal" - oats and some wheat in. There was even more perfect conditions than last year(started May 4, 2018) - no potholes to speak of, dust, moisture within .5" of surface and avg soil temps at 1" close to 5 deg - and very few other people going which not a bad thing either. Actually the 1' of very wet, Spring snow on the ground right now is a very good thing as think if people thought we were dry last year it could be drier this yr - I actually like dry years. Think this may be most significant moisture for soil since last September.

The annual start seeding thread should maybe be replaced with "do you start seeding by calendar, conditions, or when I have time for it. It will probably be touch later than "normal" by time we can start up again here so it certainly will not be dryer than "normal" to start crop.
