Bexley Farmers' Market: September 3rd

“Food, a French man told me once, is the first wealth. Grow it right, and you feel insanely rich, no matter what you own.”

Give Back to Your Soil: Planting a Fall Cover Crop

Photo Credit: Modern Farmer

"With every garden harvest, the soil nutrients that produced the crop are removed and end up nourishing our bodies, rather than next year's crop. For this reason, farmers and gardeners have to replenish the soil every year. Adding fertilizers and compost is one way to accomplish the task, but nutrients can also be returned with a cover crop—plants that give back to the soil what others have removed." - Brian BarthModern Farmer
