New Season at the Door! 🤩
We're looking forward to the upcoming season! In the photo you can see our kale seedlings. We also picked up lettuce and onion seedlings and would like to start planting in 2 weeks' time. Fingers crossed for fine weather to enable the soil to dry out enough for the planting preparations to begin.
Winter Cover Crops
We have been growing a variety of cover crops over winter that will become a mulch layer in the upcoming season to plant our vegetable crops into. We have been experimenting with different mixes that have been generating biomass and fixing nitrogen in the ground over winter:
1. 45% oats, 53% faba beans, 2% crimson clover
2. 60% ryecorn, 30% hairy vetch, 5% maple peas and 5% balansa clover
3. 45% ryecorn, 53% faba beans, 2% crimson clover
4. 45% triticale, 53% faba bean, 2% crimson clover
5. 100% faba bean
