Not decided yet on a date, and not even sure I can pull one off this year. I figure I can do one, but I have the land rented out and in soybeans, planted late. The renter talked like they will be out easy by middle of October, but we have a family wedding on October 24th, so that date is out. The next Saturday is Halloween Saturday, and I'm not sure how many would want to be trick or treating with their kids. Usually the 1st weekend of November is a plow day in New Harmony, IN, which I'd rather not have on the same date as some I know go to that plow day. All in the breeze right now. If for some reason I don't have a Fall plow day, rain, health, whatever....then I'll shoot for a Spring plow day. I'll know soon.
Please give feedback about Friday & Saturday, October 30th & 31st.
In a way, I'd rather wait till spring for a plow day, as then I'd not have to plant a cover crop, saving money & labor. Plus life has been a little tough since just after last year's plow day. But then I've seen how much fun everyone has, and waiting seems wrong. I also worry we could have another wet spring like last year and we'd have no chance at all for a plow day.
So give your feedback on all I've said. I have a feeling if I pass on a fall plow day that I'll regret it.
