Is the frost out of the ground by you???
I looked at it, and it was definitely graded well. Sounds like a good idea to me. The guy was worried that if we slit seeded it, that he would have rows that he could see. I think I will propose this to him, as it is not as much fooling around.

The frost is mostly out of the ground finally. So far we got in 2 cleanups, picked up most of the snow plow markers and picked up a skid steer from its' jobsite. Other than that, the ground is too wet (obviously you're in WI) to do any work. I'm thinking we are maybe 2-3 weeks out from being able to do most cleanups it looks like.
