Default Green mulch


* My wife has seen others do this , and has suggested I try it . I'm
looking for suggestions for something to plant this fall with the
intention of turning it under in the spring . I'm currently taking some
time to pre-prep the garden for next year - the purchase of a rear tine
tiller has affected my decision . The only thing concrete is where the
strawberries will be - they ain't movin' . Everything else will be
turned under and planted with something , except a small patch which
will be planted in garlic . The current wire trellis (for beans) will be
pulled out and relocated - if I use it at all next year .

Doesn't clover fix the nitrogen in the soil? Could be a good turn-under planting.

Most folks here (western NC) plant winter rye this time of year, then mow it and turn it under in the spring.
