Give Back to Your Soil: Planting a Fall Cover Crop

Photo Credit: Modern Farmer

"With every garden harvest, the soil nutrients that produced the crop are removed and end up nourishing our bodies, rather than next year's crop. For this reason, farmers and gardeners have to replenish the soil every year. Adding fertilizers and compost is one way to accomplish the task, but nutrients can also be returned with a cover crop—plants that give back to the soil what others have removed." - Brian Barth, Modern Farmer

Learn more about planting cover crops this fall from Brian Barth's article found on the Modern Farmer website.

While reading this article learn more about:
  • General cover crop facts
  • Which cover crops to plant
  • When to plant your cover crops
  • And, how to sow your cover crop seeds

Think About Your Fall Garden...

Photo Credit:  Modern Farmer

"Cool autumn weather favors a long list of leafy greens and root crops, from spinach and kale to radishes and rutabagas. Planting fall crops may be the last thing on your mind during the dog days of summer, but growing a garden to maturity before cold weather sets in means getting started in mid- to late-summer, just as the first warm-weather crops start to peter out."

The time has come to start thinking about your fall garden!

So, what will it be? Lettuce, arugula, kale? Beets, carrots, or broccoli? How about all of that and more! Check out Brian Barth's article, How to Plant a Fall Garden, found on the Modern Farmer website to learn more about planting your fall garden.

In the meantime, here is a list of cool season crops to plant in you fall garden, along with the approximate number of days to maturity:

  • Lettuce – 50
  • Arugula – 40
  • Chard – 55
  • Spinach – 45
  • Kale – 60

Plants Benefit from Probiotics, Too!

"Probiotics have been advertised as a treatment for everything from allergies to digestive issues to, amazingly, social anxiety. New research indicates that we might not be the only ones to benefit from probiotics, though: a study from the University of Washington suggests that plants might grow bigger and stronger with a dose of bacteria as well." - Dan Nosowitz

"Not all insects are nuances, pests, or poisonous. Some are actually beneficial"
-Anonymous



"Some bugs eat our crops, but fortunately, there are other bugs that eat those plant-eating bugs. The trick is to make your garden appeal to them. Just like in the world of mammals, in the insect world, there are plant-eaters and there are animal-eaters. Those species that are referred to as beneficial insects, though they may be cute (like ladybugs), are those with carnivorous tendencies. The bug-eating bugs are the ones you want in your garden. They prey on pest insects or, in some cases, parasitize them—tachinid flies, for example, lay eggs in the heads of caterpillars and then the larvae hatch and tunnel into their host, quickly killing them." - Brian Barth, Modern Farmer

Let's bring the good bugs back! Learn how to create a beneficial bug sanctuary in your backyard! Read through Brain Barth's article found on the Modern Farmer website!
