Sunflowers, lavender, berries, apples, chestnuts. That’s what grows on this Maury Island farm. I use a winter cover crop and no synthetic chemicals in producing crops including a dozen varieties of sunflowers ranging in color from light yellow to dark red. Our five acres was once part of Kenny Larsen’s 150-acre red currant farm one of the largest west of the Mississippi.
I plant a winter cover crop of organic rye and vetch which is tilled under in April which adds organic matter and creates good tilth for the year’s crops. I follow organic farming methods and never use chemical pesticides or herbicides.
