Mike Lawless leveling the paths between the rows. After the paths are leveled, we plant a cover crop of annual rye grass, which keeps weeds, mud and erosion under control. Once it gets about 6" high we will mow it down and let it dry out, again preventing weeds to grow. It dies back during the summer and enriches the soil with organic matter.
