BIOCHAR DEMO BEDS -- WINTER CROP 2016 - 2017

For winter, we planted two rows of garlic + a mixed cover crop.

--------------------------------- 

November 8, 2016 - Seedlings sprouted within a week.  
 
October 29, 2016 - Worm castings were spread lightly over the cover crop seeds. 
 
October 29, 2016 - The cover crop seeds were sown at the rate of about one-half pound/bed. Care was taken to avoid the garlic rows, but there was some overlap.

October 29, 2016 - The Gardenway Cover Crop seed mixture consists of CCT Triticale, Austrian Winter Peas, Walken Oats, Crimson Clover, Common Vetch, and Gulf Annual Ryegrass.

October 29, 2016 - The garlic cloves were planted lengthwise down the middle of the prepared beds. The row of China Pink garlic is on the right, closest to the sign.
