    Just found out that we got 4" of rain near the cabin last night. Roads washed out. We were already too wet before this. I would not be surprised if my plots are destroyed.

    Your brassicas are hardy and if it dries out don't be surprised to see them pull through...the rye and pea plot....well that may be needing a quick re seed with some winter rye as that stuff will grow fast and tender during season as long as rain doesn't keep coming.

    Well that is the problem. Stuff doesn't dry out very fast by me. Very slow process.

    High clay content right? Hopefully over the years as you work it this will get a little better.

    The heaviest, thickest, nastiest, clay material you can imagine combined with no elevation change so the water doesn't go anywhere.

    This was how wet it was before the 4" last night. We have never got rain like this before since I owned it so I don't know what to expect on how the plots drained and handled it.

    Thats alot of water. Getting the same thing in kewaunee and door county WI. My properties def drain faster than that though. Everytime we have planted this year we get a 2 or 3 inch soaker within the next few days. Great for germimatiom and covering seeds but its been prown to washout of some seeds as well. Need a couple hot windy dry days now to get those new wet seeds to blast off.

    Here is the way our plots look after 3 weeks...

    Wet weather has had an effect on them for sure!

    I planted CowPeas for the first time last year - they looked amazing, the deer didn't do much with them. Not sure what the deal was. I was shocked that they didn't hit them very hard. They hammered my soy bean plot just 80 yards away.
