    I’m in charge of the University’s community garden. We have appx 500 sq. feet of raised bed growing space and I like to put in a cover crop every year. Can you tell me how much of the hairy vetch I would need for 500 sq ft? And the cost?

    Last year I used a polycultural crop of tillage radish, Austrian winter peas, oats, rye and wheat. The radish and peas never germinated. Will vetch germinate this time of year in the lower Panhandle of Texas?
