I just did the maintainence on my leaf sweeper...sad...I threw away the old bag because I just "knew" the guy that gave it to me had a new bag in the box. But he opened it, and mice, and holes and wow what damage those buggers can do over years. Anyway, new hopper bag inbound.

Absolutely the best thing any gardener can do to favorably impact next year's garden is plant cover crops. They provide N2, tons of organic matter, beneficial soil amendments, weed control, and insect prevention, e.g. nematodes among others.

I've planted Elbon rye, assorted small grains, peas, clovers, vetch,turnips, etc. etc. and its coming on strong surrounding my long row of brassica veggies which we will eat all winter. There is nothing that compares to the benefits of a good cover crop impacting next year's garden....and its so easy to do.
