Hey Mike,

I have pretty much the exact same set up this year. Have you had any problems growing tomatoes in the soil cubes? I have had really good luck with beets and zucchini but pretty much everything else I have planted has not popped up. I planted seeds in 196 cubes and not even close to half of them have germinated in nearly three weeks. I am keeping them watered with a spray bottle twice a day. Have you had any problems?

That is what I had hoped. Thank you so much for the reassurance.

Are you saying just go ahead and seed right over the other weeds and keep water on it? No need to hoe it down to bare soil?

I have only owned my land for a few years and I am planning on turning it into a bit of a food forest. My question is about winter/ fall cover crops. I am at the end of my gardening season and about to transition to fall cover crops (winter rye, daikon radish and oats). My plot is about a 1/4 acre and I want to (be lazy) interfere with nature as little as possible. Can I just spread in the aforementioned seed mixture and let nature take its course? Or, is is necessary from anyone's experience to hoe all the grasses (weeds), cowpeas, buckwheat, etc that is still alive on the land to ensure all my winter seeds germinate properly? I hope to just tear down all the existing vegetable plants and not have to weed a 1/4 acre.

Any perspectives/ life experiences would be greatly appreciated!

My thanks to you in advance,
-Rich
