I will be planting legumes (peas, southern peas, and beans) next season. I absolutely plan to use cover crops as a big part of this garden- buckwheat and rye grass are the plan. However that's little help to me now in the dead of winter..
This soil was just a yard growing grass. Unfertilized. It was a vegetable garden a few decades back.
