I just got back to California and my garden this week. The corn is finished and tomorrow I'll till it under. I just ordered a winter cover crop that should come within a week. I think the organic SoilMax Legume mix looks good. You can sow it in the fall and expect growth until winter when the plants will protect the soil from erosion. In spring when the plants begin to flower, they can be tilled in to increase nitrogen and make the soil lighter and more tillable.
