if you could let your garden go fallow for a year...
I'm pregnant with my first child, and I suspect I won't have a lot of garden time next summer. I live in zone 5 and my garden is about 20 x 15 feet. Can you suggest a cover crop that would last most of the summer, be good for the soil and keep the weeds from taking over?
Maybe I'll put a tomato plant in or some herbs -- something low-key -- but I'd hate to look out on my garden and see it turning into a mess of weeds. I figure I might as well do something good for the soil in the process. Any ideas?
