Mother Earth News Editor-in-Chief Cheryl Long teaches attendees about cover crops

Cheryl Long, Editor-in-Chief of Mother Earth News:
The lesson here is, if you aren’t growing crops on those beds, throw a cover crop seed onto that bed, and keep the green, growing plants.

The other thing we don’t always appreciate is that some crops need really warm temperatures, and they won’t grow when it’s chilly. Other crops hate the heat, and love to go to town when it’s 45 degrees out.

There are a number of what we call cover crops that thrive really well in cool temperatures, and if you put those cover crops onto your garden beds when you’re not growing your food crops, you’re essentially squirting fertilizer that will be there when the next crop is ready to be planted. Those are the core points that I wanted to outline for you to start us off.
