Turning in cover crop

Turning over cover crop

In the main garden, work continues to turn the cover crop under, one shovel-full at a time. This is my first time to overwinter the garden with a cover crop. I chose Polar Triticale and I have been very pleased with it. Instead of rototilling, I will turn the cover over so that the soil can enrich itself by reclaiming the cover crop. I'm about six weeks out from putting the first of the vegetable plants into the soil, but I do have yellow snap peas growing in this garden already. :)
