Concerned about the reappearance of a cover crop during vegetable planting season.
I'm a learning organic gardener.
I plan on planting a winter cover crop for two reasons.
One to help deposit much needed nutrient's and two to improve the clay and hardpan?
I did a soil test and the results were "just under adequate, except for the pH level - 6.0/ 6.5 range. Then I found clay. Thein I found hardpan.
I guess it's hardpan
That's what my Dad Calls it. I call it cement!
I have never tried a cover crop but in researching it, it appears to be a very good idea.
ALL comments are welcome.
I will be using a combination of::
a - Winter rye
b New Zealand White clover-
c- Hairy Vetch
I sure hope someone can help this new to gardening lady out.
