Cover cropping adds life to the soil. Root exudates pump sugars into the ground, and increase good bacteria and fungi in your garden. If you want to add fungi to the garden as well as adding worms, bacteria and other good guys, plant a cover crop! This is a simple no-till method to build soil fast. You can plant Sudan-sorghum, rye grass, clover, millet, sunn hemp and other plants that will get to work adding sugar to the soil as they add organic matter! You don’t need to make a compost pile to feed the garden – not when you can grow your own compost right in place! Any time you have bare soil, cover it with living plants and transform bad dirt like the regenerative farming people do!
