I've noticed by
reading back over old posts that I tend to be less than enthralled
with just about every cover crop the first time I grow it, so take
this with a grain of salt, but...I'm less than enthralled with sunn
Here are the negatives that jumped out at me this summer:
All of that said,
sunn hemp is pretty,
especially now that it's starting to bloom. And the plants
are legumes, so they fix nitrogen, which my other cover crops
don't do. Still, they failed to meet my two primary goals
for cover crops (maximum biomass production and weed suppression),
so I don't think we'll try sunn hemp again.
