The above inventory makes up about 1/2 of my garden space.

The other 1/2 is planted in a rotation cover crop of alfalfa which is about 10 inches high. Mowed several times through spring/summer providing great soil building.

It will remain in that cover crop until spring when I will turn it under and plant my spring/summer crops. It will thrive all winter (survived 8 deg. last winter ).

Your garden sounds wonderfully efficient and productive, as well as being a shining example of the benefits of cover crops and crop rotation.
