Snow Seeding Swale Mounds!

Posted by Richard Larson about 10 years ago

The snow is going to melt in a few weeks giving way to spring! Now is the time to experiment with this seeding technique.

Took advantage of a fat discount offered by a seed business last December and ordered a few bags of cover crop seeds. The main species was the plant; Birdsfoot Trefoil, a tough cold climate long-lived nitrogen fixing legume. Seeded as a first pioneer in a succession planting to eventually establish an apex species tree with productive understory.

Seeds on the snow.

Birdsfoot Trefoil established before last fall, happy it lived through the exceptionally cold long winter.

There be me!

Kevin Young : Very clever idea! I'm so curious to see how the hugelkultur beds do this year, and how well your swales work. How did you position the hugelbeds relative to the swales? What are your next planting plans for the beds?

Richard Larson : Kevin, I have a swale mound that is also a hufelbed and a number of other hugelbeds that are near swales, one on the upside and one at the end. I posted new videos on what I have been planting on the swale mounds! Time to go to work Travis! Yippee!
