Homegrown humus is very easy with cover crops!

Cover crops are fantastic and very simple, cheap way to boost your soil's organic matter, to mitigate weeds, to prevent erosion, to attract pollinators, and to keep the ecosystem in balance. Unfortunately most information on growing cover crops is written for people who plow their soil every year and are willing to spray herbicides ti mitigate pests. You can get all of the same benefits in a no till garden, though, if you're clever!

This book details five no till winners in depth --- buckwheat, sweet potatoes, oilseed radishes, rye, and oats. Profiles of other species suggest gardening conditions when you might want to try out sunflowers, annual rye grass, barley, Austrian winter peas, crimson clover, cow peas, or sun hemp as well.

This book delves into finding cover-crop seeds, planting cover crops in a no till garden, and easily killing cover crops without tilling or herbicide use. Understanding the Carbon-Nitrogen (C:N) ratio of cover crops helps determine how long to wait between killing cover crops and planting vegetables, as well as how to maximize the amount of humus you're adding to your soil.

Cover crops are an advanced gardening technique bound to increase your vegetable yields, and save you money, but are simple enough for beginners. Give your garden a treat, and grow some buckwheat!
