  1. Cover crops only (mostly) benefit the soil once you’ve tilled the plants back in. The nitrogen fixed by the legumes stay in the [legumes]. It doesn’t help if you miss a feeding day or whatever. That would mean that the legumes give some nitrogen willingly to the cannabis plant. This isn’t the case (I wish it was)

  2. While cover crops are part of the puzzle. We must not forget the companion planting.
    Companion plants for soil building or pest or nutrient storage is the way to go.
    Living soil no till regenerative polyculture planting is the future.

  3. I used the same seed mix for my outdoor pots and raised bed this year. First time using cover crop. Been a month since I broadcasted the seeds and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Do you plan to chop it down when it matures or let it go? Just curious. I have read/seen different things and not sure what route to go. Thanks!

  4. Did you plant your ladies yet? The weather has been horrible!
    Tday (Monday, May 13th, 42 degrees!) ugh. Hoping the sun comes out soon.
    Love your vids. So helpful. Are those 65 gal, and can I plant the cover crop at same time I put my lady in?
