During spring and throughout the summer, gardeners are busy harvesting from crops that were planted in their gardens. Our garden soils provide an abundance of harvested peas, lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, sweet corn, yellow squash, zucchini, basil, zinnias and many other vegetables and flowers. Planting a cover crop is one of the best ways to thank our garden soil at the end of the gardening season and to help improve and rebuild it for the next growing season. Cover crops are used as mulches, green manures, nitrogen sources, catch crops and soil covers.
