BJE, it depends on what you are trying to accomplish. I'm frustrated that the peas, brassicas, oats, cereal rye, sunflowers and beans (at this point they'll just be for greenery, unless there is a REALLY late spring) aren't all planted already on a property I manage in C MN (bit further north than where you are). In that case, I want mass tonnage of food production. The plots that will have peas, beans and sunflowers in them I'm going for a candy crop side benefit.
On the flip side, on the properties I will be offering ample nutrition and don't need to worry about those plots helping to provide overwinter nutrition, I won't even start planting until August.
Tom, unless it is going to cost people wasted time, $ or hunting opportunities, I try to keep my big mouth shut. Jeff is trying to scratch out a living in a very competitive industry and it's hard enough without people saying he doesn't know what he's talking about. There are some things he says that just floor me with how wrong they are, though. I don't know if it's because he really believes it (likely from actually doing so little of this himself and mainly just telling others what to do) or if it is his attempt to make himself somehow look different/better. I don't know, but I dang near spit coffee when I read him telling everyone to plant cereal rye twice, 2 weeks apart...another coffee spitter was (backspaced over...I'll just leave it at that)
