I have recently moved to new site and have gotten my butt kick by snow drifts all winter. I am working on a long term plan to cut down on the wind and build a perennial living snow fence.
In the short time as the perennial snow fence grows in I was hoping to grow an annuals to do the work. I am thinking of using a strip 2 to 4 feet wide by 100 yards of some grain like corn or wheat.
I have no experience with growing grain like this.
Sorry for the delay, I am currently on a project in Ecuador where the internet comes and goes with the rainstorms and landslides. For a living annual snow fence I think Michael and Jay hit the nail on the head, Jerusalem Artichokes, Sunflowers, and Corn would be the first plants that I would try. Each have a tall sturdy stem, the sunflowers and artichokes should hold up the best, as they are deep rooted and very strong plants.
