Phil put out a cover crop plot this year. He did last year just for fun but this one has backing and is part of a plot tour this fall. Rain would really help at this point. On Friday night we had a storm go through and netted 3/10ths of an inch of rain and hail. Not sure how these little guys faired.
These photos are from the last week of August. All are planted into where the wheat was harvested in July so that is the golden stubble you see.
With kudos to my SL friends, there is a sample of Sunn Hemp out there someplace! ;) Not in a photo up-close though.
Phil has 10 different cover crops in the plot. Some are single samples and some are mixtures such as rye & radishes together. The plot postcard (5×7) for our corn, soybean, and new cover crop advertisement came out last week. Sorta cool!! The front has his name spelled correctly for the address; wrong for his plot. :\ I know you know where to come and whom to contact if you are interested.
B&B not included in invite. ;)
