A beneficial practice to improve your soil
Thanks for the read. I thought you might be interested to know that we've been experimenting with peppergrass, the winter weed, as an early season cover crop. The seeds are easy to gather, we sow them after fall harvest, and the plants fade away early enough without much labor or encouragement. It gives us something green to eat extra early too.
My father-in-law does hay, in Pennsylvania, so I’m not sure that will help us in Tennessee once we are true homesteaders. We are still in Virginia, and on the “we may be moving there in the next five years” plan. Helpful information to keep in my back pocket, thank you.
