Woo Hoo! Here Comes The Rain
After three years of drought we've had nearly 10 inches of rain over the past few months. Our cover crop is planted each year and serves several purposes. It adds an organic source of nitrogen to the soil and creates a friendly habitat for our insect predators (ladybugs, lacewings and such). These predatory insects feed on the "bad" insects which in turn eliminates the need for chemical pesticides.
