I planted my cover crops just in time to take advantage of the copious rain this May. Without using any irrigation, both the Sunn Hemp and Buckwheat are bright and huge. There will be enough time this summer for multiple cover crop rotations, which is great because my sandy soil can use all the organic matter and nitrogen fixing it can get. I was really hoping to plant a nematocidal marigold crop, but couldn’t find the seed in the amount I needed. I did however have a few individual plants volunteering here and there and when they flowered I let the seeds fall, waited for germination and transplanted a couple hundred of them to one bed. Now I’m waiting for that bed to flower so I can save a substantial amount of seeds. Maybe towards the end of the summer I’ll be able to put in a crop, even if just in one of the two gardens.
