We are 3 months before typically worrying about fertilizer or any field activity around here, actually above zero right now, been 2 days below...

Yea, this dry ground is something. Wonder what comes of it this year. Sounds like the eastern corn belt got fall rains, and is getting spotty snow and moisture this winter? So they might be looking good in spring.

The western side, we are mighty dry yet. These hot and cold snaps are promising, when weather changes, it offers chances for moisture.

But we have mostly bare ground here, with a lot of very slippery ice where the little bit of snow got compressed.

Oh well, gotta plan and move forward like always, I'd plan for making good hay early, because 'here' that is the best chance to make a crop, try to sit this year out and wait and see and you might miss out on the only chance you get.

Farming, try to make enough last year to try doing it again next year. :)

A year ago we were in a similar position as we are now......might have had a bit more subsoil moisture then but not much. First week Nov 2011 I buried rock, got 8 feet down before getting out of powder dry. Tiled in Dec 2011 thru 10 inches of crystalline frost. We had good recharge this Spring, similar dryness now.
