The rye is being mowed. We plant rye in the fall as a cover crop. This serves to prevent erosion, to capture nitrogen in the soil and to improve the structure of the soil. In the spring it is plowed under as a green manure. Today is plow day as the conditions are perfect.

There are vegetables under the row covers under the snow. Hopefully the voles will not find the treasure.
