So what's the right procedure here. I've got about a foot to 18" high cover crop of clover and vetch over my beds that are to be planted this weekend. I'm gonna shave off the top with the weed whacker and then:
a) Compost it
b) Let it act as mulch while it decays
In HG's book he says to let the roots stay and decay but doesn't especally say what to do with the overcover. This is alot of mass and I don't want to waste it where it is needed.
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
