Our first video of 2024 shows you how we turn under cover crops here at Gardenerd HQ. For small space gardens, a tiller or tractor isn’t in the cards. Christy shows you how we do it by hand, and get a workout in the process.
Grow cover crops in at least one bed over winter, and in spring whatever you plant in that spot will grow like crazy. We strategically plant a cover crop over winter where we plan to plant our tomatoes in spring. It’s a win-win situation for all involved.
