I've plowed up to 1 1/2-2" of frost, but I learned the hard way to remove the colters. I broke a crank and buried it until spring or the next fall when I plowed again.

Normally I try not to plow with more than 1" of frost, and try for less. A lot has to do with how much moisture is in the ground when it freezes too. If it's really wet like this year, 2" will be rock hard. In other years where it's drier 2" of frost isn't a big deal

It's been just wet enough around here to keep the soil moist & turning good for ten year old no-till. Well, as good as it gets with a worn plow. I had no idea how bad it was until I got to the farm I'm working up now. My hay field & corn patch are a fairly clay free sandy loam, with a good crop of "petrified potatoes" at all times & don't usually know the plow is back there until it finds a big one. The fields I'm plowing under now have about everything but sand & only a handful of stones, large or otherwise.

Provided the weather holds up for a few days, I should be able to finish up before I have to worry about frost & freezing conditions. The wait continues for parts, as I had to send the new landsides back. The hole for the largest bolt, in BOTH of them, was punched with a dull die & warped enough to stick out about a quarter of an inch further than the land-side of the point on the share. Then I had to go & bust two of those fancy keyed-head counter-sunk plow bolts. *sigh*

At last, with your input, it sounds like there's still a fighting chance even after the ground firms up a touch.
