    We only got 0.07" this morning but I know you guys downstate need it a lot more than we do so I won't begrudge you that. Hope you get all you need...and that you didn't seed your brassicas too heavy :)

    All my clover areas looked good this is one example.

    This is another 12 day old Brassica area in the woods. My fear is I over seeded from the looks of it.

    I had Turkeys in this plot this morning so I hope the birds will thin it out.

    Yes It did rain this morning.

    From about 4:30-10:00 am
    Not super heavy but it was so nice I’m sure it will make the plots happy.

    All my pics posted above I took at 10:30 ish today

    I planted my first ever food plot Saturday. I planted turnips. I've been following his thread and it has been really helpful. Generally speaking, how long before I should expect to see some germination?

    By day 6 you should see pre leaves up. That depends on moisture and if you planted in a prepped seed bed that was cultipacked before and after broadcasting seed.

    My brassicas are doing exceptional, planted July 14. I cant seem to time the urea with rain. I wish I would have gotten up early this morning and spread it. Been raining nice all morning. Only 30% chance tomorrow.
