Look at our pretty green sprouts.
Fall in Ontario is about brown. Gardening season is done. Leaves, grass, flowers are all pretty drab. But we have one new crop growing.
This is our winter rye cover crop in the vegetable garden. It’s our first time trying a cover crop.
We love our garden and how productive it is. So we’re working hard to maintain the quality of our soil. Last year, I spread straw and manure all over the garden. This year, we’re going with so-called green manure.
In the spring, we’ll cut the rye and turn it into the soil.
Have you ever grown a cover crop? Do you have any green growing at your house?
