So< how is everyones dormant seed doing?

I had about 12 dormant seed jobs in late november last year. we seeded at 10lbs per K fescue.

so far i have about 75% or so germination coverage on all of them, with a few being more and turning out really good. we have had rain yesterday and just now for about 2 hours or so with warm coming on. I predict a 95% coverage or better on most of them.

I am impressed, i have never done very many of these before. i encouraged it over spring seeding to give it a head start.

How are your jobs turning out etc.

Snow is almost gone here so I may see results in 2 to 4 weeks...

Cold around here. 40 at the moment. Seed sown on top of snow--snow melted--seed on soil--no result yet.
However very warm temps expected in next two days.
