Anybody have corn in the ground yet? I am seriously considering planting this coming weekend.
I think 55 is typical standard. I took morning readings of 65 last weekend. Yeah, the cold snap on Thursday & Friday are going to push it back down, but there is a lot of sun and warmer temps forecasted starting Sunday and on thru next week.Might be just a tab but early. Ground temp needs to be 60 or above if I'm not mistaken.
This weekends forecast lows are right at or below freezing too.
Yep. That is the deal.Not sure where you are, but East of 95 you’re probably fine. 4/15 is our frost free date.
The only risk would be a late freeze hitting the corn in a few weeks if it’s in the seedling stage.
This weekend would be a great time to top seed your corn to be done before turkey season.Yep. That is the deal.
I planted on the 16th last year for that reason. Farmer down the road had had his corn in the ground for 2-3 weeks by then. I would like to plant this weekend because during turkey season I would rather be .... turkey hunting
weather.com long range forecast (out to the 14th) shows that after this weekend the lows never dip below the high 40s.
I may go ahead and do this.
