Sow Summer Cover Crops
If you have open garden space that will become your winter garden, sow cover crops there now, and then transplant your fall or winter vegetables into the bed once you’ve harvested the cover crops.

Get ideas for what kinds of summer cover crops to grow in our Garden Almanac and check out our books Your Farm in the City and the new edition of our Maritime Northwest Garden Guide for more ideas and guidance.
