- In December we planted oats in the open ground at Whitmore.
- The oats have germinated but not grown much due to lack of rain. We will irrigate them as soon as district water is available.
- We can sell the oats in the spring as green-chop or summer as hay.
- If hay prices were to unexpectedly collapse we could incorporate the oats into the soil as "green manure" by disking.

Do you know there's a National Oatmeal Day?
Yes. Anyway, here's a short update on our oats field.
