Thank you buckwheat

Buckwheat (Fagopyrum sagittatum)

As we face the close of the summer season, production slows or ceases with our warm season crops.  I have to pause to give a shout-out to Buckwheat:  the uniform germination of this smother crop saved us many hours of weeding and brought in the bees for miles.  A couple of nice rains and a week of drying out allowed for perfect tilling.  The buckwheat should break down quickly and make room for fall planting.  Thanks Buckwheat.
