cover crops

Did some weeding in the overgrown field #1. Here's a good example of cover cropping using clover and vetch. They are legumes that will supply nitrogen to the crop while surpressing weeds. If only all the beds looked this good. I'm learning a lot though. Next year every bed will be cover cropped.

Ooops! peanuts and clover, both are legumes, so technically not providing nutrients to each other, but they look healthy enough!
