    Looking forward to my 1 lb garden mix for my raised beds. Excellent packaging for freshness. I would like the bag to say how many square feet a pound covers. The broadcasting method uses a lot of seed. Also can you put pictures of the seeds in that bag on your website , Ashleigh so I know which seed is which. Thanks so much for your guides that are very helpful.

    This was so helpful, thank you! Can cover crops be harvested, or are they supposed to be filled back into the soil before harvest? I’ve planted rye for the first time this year!

    6K sq’ garden in jail impound lot growing produce for the needy. Heavy clay soil 12-24" deep, with caliche below that. Vegetables produced = very few. Plan to stop the garden 1 Oct, lat down mulch, till, and plant legume cover crop to penetrate the soil and provide nitrogen. Primary = red clover. Sec = Alphalfa. Poss = cover crop mix. Thoughts???

    Going to try the garden cover crop in my raised beds this winter. I had a lot of soil erosion last year!

    Cover Crops are the bomb! I’ve mostly been using crimson clover and fava beens over the last few years (fava shoots are edible for those that dont know and do well in winter in many zones 😉) but this winter I’m trying out a mix of cover crops to see how they do :)
