Coming Through – the Rye



Ken often plants rye in the fall.  It will start growing later in the year than other green manures, and grow up again in spring. 





It provides soil cover to lessen erosion, root mass and plant matter to boost organic matter. It tempers soil temperature to promote microbial life in the soil – all good.






It is always fun to see the rye coming up when other plants are dying back
