Your neighbors crop will come up the same time as yours and yours will be more even. Extra moisture probably gives some leeway on seeding shallower now too, extra bonus.

Have turned any dirt yet. Got 7" of snow yesterday into this morning. Mostly melted, another day or 2 and it'll be gone. Low of 22F here tonight. Maybe will be going by end of this week.

We've never grown it ourselves, so take this for what it's worth. A guy near us has grown it almost every year for as long as I have been alive, and I don't ever recall it dying off from a late frost, and my area gets late and hard frosts often.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Why will the later crop be more even ?

Warmer soil. Around here the snow is melting slowly, meaning cold soil. Wind made drifts so right now some hillsides are bare and some drifts. Deep seeding amplifies this. Starting with an uneven crop means every subsequent field operation becomes harder to time properly.

So waiting until in a phase of good weather and continuous warming is ideal, unless of course it never rains. I get it that guys in your area would see this as a serious threat but in the last 20 years here I can think of 2 when we had to wait any amount of time for moisture to grow a crop.

Obviously hindsight is 20/20 but I chose to keep the seed in the bin and focus on field prep. Right now that looks like the right decision...unless it rains every few days for the next few weeks(which is more of a threat here). I've just noticed that the May crops always seem to be the best, hopefully things hold to the pattern and we get going in the next week or so. 4" of wet snow here much like whtbaron's pictures.

Well this fall rye thing. I’ll say it dies too. Some looks awesome! I’ll say 10-15% is dead.

I was thinking to put flax on 160 acers or so where it’s dead. What’s best verities of flax are out there today ?

Going to be a late start this year. With the cool temps and hard frosts every night this wk looks like it’s a right off. Doing a burnoff could get interesting. Maybe some of the weeds will take a hit. I’m sure all the chem companies are all gathering to go over what they are going to tell us why something didn’t work. Of course, it’s always our fault.
Wondering what is going to happen to any seed that has puffed up or even sprouted with these cold night time temps?

Got going on the 2nd of April, had a good run and had some fall seeded crops in to speed up this spring, all finished off around the 20th, very dry by end but good some needed rains and snow this last week, ground temps were up to 12c before this last Artic front hit.. wheat, durum, peas out, waiting on chicks to submerge, but with frost last few nights, maybe a good thing.. about 1/2 guys done I would guess in area.. some waiting for Rain to start, and then the reg slow pokes.. could be another week before feilds are Ready to get back in.. good 1.5” rain and snow
