After tilling the patch I sowed some Winter Rye, Winter Oats and Hardy Vetch. Temperatures are forecast to be above freezing for the next 7 days so I hope to get that seed going before it gets cold. With temperatures in the 60s and low 70s for the next week that shouldn't be a problem.
My plan for next year is a little more organic matter and a fair amount more nitrogen in the patch. I didn't see the growth in my vines that I would have liked to have seen this last season and after seeing some soil reports and talking with top growers I've decided that additional nitrogen in the soil is a good idea. With all of the organic matter that I've put down I'll need the extra nitrogen to make sure all of that material is broken down by spring.
