Finally, a day to work in the patch! Winter rye mixture coming in nicely considering the cold harsh winter we had this year. Good luck to all for a great 2017 season!

My new seed germinating tent is set up and ready to go. Will be doing test germinations this week. Really hoping for a change in the weather sometime soon. We just finished our wettest March on record and now that trend has continued into April. Warmth and sun can't come soon enough.

Test germination successful...and only took 3 days. Getting exciting! Just need mother nature to cooperate, aside from sun today, we've been solidly in cool damp weather.
