    Should have pulled them by hand and saved your moisture.

    Cold steel was definitely the best option.

    This is my first time planting sunflowers
    They just tolerated 7 months of zero % moisture in a bag. A few weeks shouldn't be a problem.

    Soybeans are an issue because of their high oil content. They need moisture or rain pretty quick.

    Not at 125 degrees in the direct sun. I still don't think it will be a problem because I have volunteers coming up from last year's crop.
