Had a good soaking pretty much all afternoon yesterday and then a little more today, so the moisture is there now, I just hope the seeds weren't damaged or anything while they sat out there in the dryness and heat.

There is a song I learned when I was a kid sung by Herbert the Turtle:

Have patience, have patience,
Don't be in such a hurry,
When you get impatient,
You only start to worry.
Remember, remember,
That God is patient, too,
And think of all the times when others have to wait for you!

A little sunshine on your plot now, and it will really grow.

We've been waiting for sufficient rain to start planting our food plots. Last year we lost about 90% of our seeds due to the seed germinating and then drying up due to no moisture.We were having a good dove shoot this afternoon and had a storm come up just as the shooting started getting good, so we stood in the tractor shed just glad to have the rain.

So with any luck, I should be able to check it this weekend and at least see sprouts, right?
