We have 14 days of 20 degree overnights and mid 40s even some 50s for daytime high.

Thinking of seeding down a couple hundred more acres  of winter rye. Guess not to worried if it vernalizes just dont want to kill the seed. Is that possible with winter rye?

Worst case is it dont vernalize and i have some first crop grass before row crops or just burn it down after planting.

Thoughts

I put my last few acres of it in Saturday. I put in an inch and a half down with 6 inches of snow and 20-40 degree temps for the week I’ll just pray it works.

 I see a lot of guys in Minnesota are still  planting rye.  I would like to think that her at some point next spring it would frost seed?
