☀️As things start to heat up, it's important to keep your bare soil covered. For the health of your soil, moisture retention, and to prevent weeds, keep your soil covered at all times with cover crops, compost and mulch. Consider planting summer cover crops, such as buckwheat or black-eyed peas, or flax. Add compost, then mulch, to other bare soil areas. An inch or two of compost, and then two or three inches of mulch. Click on the links to get growing information and best varieties from Texas A&M Extension and other sources. Also see recording our class on cover crops with Justin Duncan from SARE on our YouTube channel. We also have a comprehensive cover crop guide on the resource section of our website.
Callahan's General Store is a great place to get cover crops.
