Johnny Coleman no til link
I think it was Johnny Coleman that posted a link on no till southern peas. I liked the link and am trying something much like it, except I am not planting in the grass ( my wife would mow them anyway)
I have extremely sorry hard soil and I don't have a lot of faith of these purple hull peas growing in no-till, un-amended soil
. I scratched two grooves in the area where my mulch was setting, planted the peas and covered with compost, and then shredded leaves. I will give them a little blue water after they come up if they need it.
I will keep you posted on how this works.
P.S. I did move my earth snake to another bed where I feel it will be safer.
