The seeds I started a while back have turned into nice sized plants.
hairy vetch again last fall. And just like last year I cut it down and put it in place as mulch. It does keep the soil underneath very damp.
I didn't start nearly as many seeds this year. I also didn't print out a diagram of the garden and mark down what I wanted to plant where. That lead directly to not knowing how many seeds to start. So I'm winging it. I'll transplant the plants I have and throw beans or something in the empty space.
