Green Manure

Building the soil food web for my new raised garden beds!

I planted oats, wheat, buckwheat, millet, brown and yellow mustard, mung beans and soy beans for nitrogen fixing, and sunflowers. 

I bought most of the seed from the bulk section of the health food stores to save money. Excited to see what sprouts! 

When it grows to about 10% flowering, I will push it all over, cover with mulch and then some compost. Then I will plant my veggie seeds and seedling directly into the compost. The microbiome of the soil will be nicely established and ready to nourish the veggie garden.
