Cover Crop 1615"3" x 7"Beds 3, 4, and 5 have Cover crop seeds from Gateway Greening. This contains a Rye and Vetch mix. It won't die on its own. This mix is unique in that rye increases carbon and vetch adds nitrogen to the soil. To kill it, weed, cut, and till the roots and flatten with a board. Keep covered with tarp for three weeks. The timing usuallyu works perfectly for transplanting warm season seedlings.
