Here’s update number six in my Tillage Radish cover crop experiment. With the winter cold and occasional warm days doing its work on the radishes, the tubers are decaying and decomposing nicely.
The tubers in the larger beds are still protruding from the ground but the tubers themselves are completely hollow and will decay rapidly once springs comes on. The upper smaller beds are almost completely decayed leaving some large holes as seen in the picture below. To my delight, the experiment is working just as planned. It has been fun discussing and “show-and-telling” the experiment with my church friends. Several are ready to try the experiment themselves this fall.
Here are the past updates:
