un-covered
















WWOOFer Andy, from Michigan, completes the destruction of the winter cover crop, using a flail grinder that violently deconstructs an enormous amount of biomass into rototillable small particles in no time at all. Nearly head-high bell beans, hairy vetch, and oats become just an inch or two of pulp on the ground. Later that day we till the plant material into the soil, and in a few days we'll start shaping beds for melons, beans, cucumbers, green peppers and eggplant.
