New articles on cover crops for vegetable gardens – with preliminary results from research in Brooklyn!

As you’re planting and tending your vegetable crops, it’s not too early to start planning what cover crops you’d like to plant in late summer or fall!  Whether you’re looking to protect your soil, add legume nitrogen for next year’s veggies, or keep down weeds, check out our recent four-part series on the Garden Professors Blog to help you choose cover crops:

“Building Healthy Soil in Vegetable Gardens: Cover Crops Have Got it Covered”

You can read all four articles in the document linked above, or check them out individually on the Garden Professors website:

Exciting news — The article on selecting cover crops has preliminary results from our cover crop research in Brooklyn, and so should be especially useful for urban gardeners. More to come soon!

Thanks to the Garden Professors eXtension Community of Practice for providing me the opportunity to write and share these articles, and to John Porter of WVU Extension for providing helpful suggestions during the review process.
