I finally took out much of our lawn in our front yard and will be growing spelt in its place to kill off any remaining grasses, then I will harvest in late spring separating the grain from the straw and Bam!! instant mulch plus fertilizer. this will also be a demonstration garden for anyone to see since a school is just down the street and we get a lot of foot traffic around 2:30.
