Ground cover with clover or vetch. Thats the basics right now.
anyone have any luck with seeds sprouting by casting on the soil surface??

i've been hearing June really seems to be key in getting things in the ground. Seemed like the rains were tame enough around here at that time as well.
Thank you for the confirmation, yes, smaller seeds seem to do much better being tossed about vs large seeds.
My big thing is to work with what you have, and not fight things. So if there is something that doesn't like this climate at all, no sense doing battle trying to grow it.
thanks again everyone.
