Hi all!

I'm finally at a place where I can switch from ornamental gardening for rich people to farming! I just built a bed here in Kentucky  and I'm trying this experiment:

https://www.gofundme.com/FlowersForSequestration

It's fully funded so I'm not looking for more donations, just wanted to show my first ever permaculture experiment!

I have oen question: here in what was once temperate but soon will be subtropical eastern Kentucky, if I seed this bed now and cover it with thick layers of hay/straw, will the seeds grow in spring. Even though the experiment is free, I don't want to lose all my seeds. If it's bad, I'll let the bed develop and seed in the spring?

Thanks for any help! This is my first post on here but it's already been a great resource for me.

Thomas

East Kentucky's not going subtropical this year, boss!

Whether or not your seed can be sown now for spring depends on what plants you're trying to grow. Since you have such a broad mix going into the beds it would be wisest to determine the optimal seed-sowing season for each crop and stage your plantings out accordingly (i.e. don't plant everything out at once).
