Checking on rye

Fall rye in mid-November

The fall rye has stayed low and not gotten too dense, but filled out nicely. As a cover crop/green manure experiment, I guess it’s doing fine. It’ll be there overwinter, and we’ll see how it does come spring. My only concern is that it gets too established and turns into a weed—it’s supposed to be potentially invasive—and that we’ll find out when the time comes!

    How did you make out with this rye as a cover crop.  Was it invasive?  How was it to till under?  I am thinking of using it too.  Thanks
