Here are some pictures of my cover crops...
any comments would be great. I have heavy clay soil.

Oats - Sowed in order to turn the oats into a weed. Hopefully I won't need to buy another 50$ bag. Also for nitrogen scavenging.

Clover and Forage Carrot Mix - N-fixing, permanent cover crop, chop and dropped (stressed) for mulch. Carrots give root matter. I throw the mix over bare soil when it arrives through my digging.

-White Cover
-Bird's Foot Trefoil
-yellow sweet clover (MELILOTUS OFFICINALIS)
-Carrot

Beets and Daikon - Spring - Winter - Fall extra root matter

the peas are just for seed saving...and the beans are for the Three Sisters guild.

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Some poems rhyme. But this is a tiny ad:

The permaculture playing cards make great stocking stuffers:
