Test planting of spring wheat

I started a spring wheat planting test today.   I understand from different sources that spring wheat should be planted as early as possible, period.  So I plan to keep drilling in a row of wheat as often as I can, hopefully every 1-2 weeks, from now until Spring.  I am using the South side of the hoop house, and today I was able to drill in a single row with the earthway.  It's Marquis, btw.  The ground was complete mud but it opened up just fine.  There is a pink flag marking the row.

This mystery plant, some kind of shrub I think, is actually leafing out!  Took this photo about two days ago.  I think it's some of the exotic honeysuckle that grows around here, but I'm not completely sure.
