Easily extend your growing season by protecting hardy crops with a floating row cover. Where you do not have crops planted, you can improve your soil with a cover crop.
- Cover Crops help control erosion during the winter and add organic material and minerals to the soil when turned under in the spring.
- Floating Row Covers (FRC) help extend the growing season by providing some protection from cool temperatures. FRC is also used to protect some crops from destructive insects.
- Be aware of the Spring Frost/Freeze dates in Maryland and Fall Frost/Freeze dates in Maryland to protect young seedlings.
