I'm sure this garden would benefit greatly from a winter cover crop correct? They are high in nitrogen correct? Should I atleast be mulching this garden in the winter? Thanks for all your help so far.

It may be too late to plant a cover crop this year, but you are correct.
When mulch begins to break down, it actually sequesters nitrogen from a thin layer of soil.
My thinking is that if you do add high nitrogen sources, then even if hot, if you dig/rotovate them in now, then the "heat" will be mostly gone by planting time.

Thanks for your help. I was thinking of doing a cover crop next fall. I was going to last fall and never got around to it.
