Not sure where in WI you are seeing that, but where I hunt they are working up fields but planting is still a ways off. But, clovers could start going in just a couple of weeks from now if you had a site prepared last fall.

Way too early, farmers are tillling and spreading fertilizer, get yourself as a soil sample right now of where your planting and you should be bringing your PH up or down right now before planting season.

May 1st in lower state,

May 15th upper state.

Yep what roundhead said, soil temp has to get higher otherwise the seed will just rot in the field.

I am planting beets, turnips,and Antler King next week. We also mix in winter wheat and oats so we have the smorgasboard of the area. This year there are less deer, so we have to get em fat to slow em down.
