The fast-growing summer compost

crop of choice, smothering most weeds.

Tolerant of poor soil, and short growing seasons.

Easy to hoe in or pull for compost. Good “nurse crop” for more delicate crops. Long-blooming, so seeds mature over a long period.

Hulls are hard to remove, but buckwheat can be ground into flour without hulling‒the hulls grind up and are traditionally left on for a dark, nutritious flour that is completely gluten-free.
