PEPPER Heat or pungency of peppers are rated in Scoville Heat Units
(SHU- 0 to 300,000). Hot growing conditions, full sun and adequate but
not excessive moisture generally promote pungency. Too much water,
nitrogen or low temperatures will drain the taste. Fruits ripening at 85º- 95º
have more pungency than those maturing at 65º - 70º. The pungency
increases tenfold when the fruits are dehydrated.

COVER CROP
Buckwheat is a fast growing short-season cover
crop. It establishes, blooms, and is ready for incorporation in 30 to 40
days. Buckwheat suppresses weeds and attracts beneficial insects and
pollinators with its abundant blossoms. It is easy to kill and extracts soil
phosphorus from soil better than most grain cover crops then releases
these nutrients to later crops. Buckwheat residue also decomposes
quickly, releasing nutrients to the next crop. Buckwheat thrives in cool,
moist conditions but it is not frost tolerant. In the South it is best sown in
May through August for cover crop use. Buckwheat is not particularly
drought tolerant, and readily wilts under hot, dry conditions. Plant
buckwheat after all danger of frost. In untilled, minimally-tilled or cleantilled soils, sow 2-3 pounds/1000square feet at 0.5 to 1.5 inches deep. If
broadcasting, spread as uniformly as you can onto a firm seedbed and
incorporate with an implement that presses the seed and soil together
lightly. 1 lB. $3 5 LB $10

PUSSY WILLOW CUTTINGS FOR PRODUCTION OF PLANTS
Pussy willow is a name given to many of the smaller species of the genus “Salix” (willows) when their furry colorful catkins (buds) emerge in early winter. Pussy
willow branches are widely sought for floral décor, landscaping, erosion control, windbreaks and land conservation projects. Pussy willows are easy to grow,
attractive to show and delightful to share. For the grower, pussy willow plantings can be developed into a winter season “cash crop”.
You can easily start a pussy willow by rooting one of its branches or cuttings in a gallon pot filled with good potting soil. The best time to root cuttings is February –
April. Plants may then be transplanted into the ground in late fall. We will provide you with instructions on how to root, grow and care for your own pussy willow
plants. Cuttings are sold in bundles of 6-8 cuttings. The number of cuttings per bundle is shown in the descriptions below.
Available Varieties: All of our pussy willow varieties are locally grown by 2014 Carolina Farm Stewardship Association Farmer of the Year Walker Miller. Mr. Miller
and his family own and operate “The Happy Berry” in Six Mile, SC.

He took also of the seed of the land, and planted it in a fruitful field: he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree. Ezekiel 17:5
“As you sow your seeds and plant your trees, you too are a part of the continuing creation of life and beauty. We are all in fact, gardening with God.”
