Today I’m here to provide you a very organic, extremely affordable way to fertilize your soil, suppress weeds, increase organic matter, and prevent erosion. I know what you’re thinking– This sounds way too good to be true! I’m happy to tell you, this is very, very real. On this special episode I’m joined by Parker from True Leaf Market, the non-GMO seed company that is literally a dream come true for homesteaders like you and I. I’ve ignored cover crops for YEARS because I had a hard time getting straight information on when and how to plant them– that changed after this interview. Join Parker and I as we dig deep into cover crops and how they can transform your garden.
Some highlights from the episode:
- What is a cover crop?
- The easy solution if you’re confused over which type of crop to plant
- Exactly WHEN and HOW to plant your own cover crops
- Cover crops options for a no-till garden
