Using green manure is one of the best ways to increase soil tilth and add organic matter to your garden or field. We use green manures during the growing season in areas not being used or being summer fallowed and also in the fall as an over wintering cover crop (to hold the soil and organic matter in place for the spring.) Using legumes as a green crop allows nitrogen to be fixed from the air into the soil for use by a following crop. When using green manures, remember to allow 4-6 weeks for the tilled-in organic matter to decompose. This can be sped up by adding nitrogen, or by spraying a mixture of seaweed and compost accelerator on the stubble before tilling in.
