Hope the weather changes. It's been below -40 for a week. Physically holding one's place in line in such conditions takes some determination. But this type of thing tends to weed out people who don't belong out on the flats during the winter.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
