In the centre is next years patch for a 1098 Moretti. Patch measures 600 square foot. I have put aside some soil from this patch for testing. A third of the patch has had manure added and a crop of grazing rye sown. Its provides a nice vibrant green cover over the winter and I plan to get the other 2/3 of the patch weeded, manure added and rye sown by the 23rd september. Due to availability I am going to have to use a 50/50 mix of vetch and rye for the remaining patch. A least vetch will create nitrogen to the soil when dug in whilst rye will just make sure that the current level of nitrogen is not leached away over winter
