I wish mine had that but o'well. I only paid 450 bucks for it and it works great. Most seeds are planted very shallow in fact you could broadcast spread a lot of them and be fine.

    Don't think of the Peas I'm planting as the kind you eat with a seed pod. It is more like a little vine that grows up the stalks of the Oats, Barley and Wheat. The pea plant puts protein back in the soil.

    I use a company called "Bear Valley Co-op" for my fertilizer. They have a big machine that can evenly spread the fertilizer in mere minutes.

    If you go to "Great Basin Seed" their web sight can shed light on all kinds of stuff you can plant for the area you live in.
    The peas put nitrogen back into the soil.
    Birds love seed mixtures like yours. Don't ask how I know.

    Good luck

    Ya I don't like feeding the birds but it goes with the territory. Usually turns out good.
    This was a picture from last year.

    We have about two feet of snow and a foot of frost!I think I will wait to plant. Usually around May 15 or later.

    I'm getting started sooner than normal. It has been a dry warm winter for Utah.

    With that said, it is snowing at my house right now.

    Seeding???????

    Its supposed to be winter my friend. Hopefully your snow will get to me. Were in desperate straights here. 20% of normal snow pack which means a very short irrigation season. Probably only one cutting. Good thing I had a bumper season last year.
    Ill probably gp out and harrow (drag type) the fields if we get a bit of moisture - need to level out the horse poop piles so neighbors don't complain, I usually just mow through them to spread them out.

    We are like 40-50% of normal. I'm really hoping I'm not wasting money seeding/fertilizing the field. It might not even rain.

    Lynn, I feel bad for you that your view is so poor while you are working in your fields......

    I've got a good friend that lives in Alamosa Colorado. Their snowfall is way behind normal as well. A tremendous amount of deep well irrigation in the San Luis Valley. Farmers there are a bit worried....

    If things don't change, wait till summer; Lake Powell and Lake Mead will be mud puddles. They are big reservoirs with hydroelectric dams. That's a lot of power and water not available to Nevada, Arizona and California. A lot of farms in California rely on that water.

    Well, when I'm in the field I don't think about anything. Old country music is playing and that's all that matters.
