Summer Compost Crop Mix
Improves the soil in new garden beds that aren't being used, or in between crops.
Any time the soil is bare, you are getting weeds and losing nutrients-this weed-smothering and soil enriching mix is the answer.
Contains buckwheat, vetch, and cowpeas. Doubles as an insectary crop to attract pest-fighting beneficial insects, and is also a fast-growing choice for livestock.
GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: Mix the contents of this packet with at least one quart of fine dirt, sand, or compost. Mix thoroughly and broadcast onto a 100 square foot bed that has been dug or tilled, and raked or forked to a fine tilth. Rake in well, to assure good soil contact with seed and keep birds from eating seed. To do this, use a chopping motion with the rake, rather than a long drawing stroke, so that seed stays more or less where it landed, not all to one side. Water in well, and keep moist until established.
