A cover crop is a crop planted in a garden bed to protect the soil from erosion, control weeds, loosen soil, improve the soil by adding organic matter and depending on the cover crop it may be used to increase the nitrogen in the soil. Most garden beds can greatly benefit from the use of a cover crop during the time the site is not planted with vegetables.
