I could munch on peas all year round -- sugar snap in cold weather -- cowpeas in the summer. Never another empty square anywhere. happy turtle

And awesome for the bees. I love you
I don't think cowpeas would be a good cover crop to overwinter.  They like it hot.  Grows fantastic in our summer heat.   But I do grow winter peas in the winter and they do fairly well.  Except I just read an article that Ohio Gardener linked and they said that cowpeas overwinter.  But I do not know what variety they could be growing that would not be killed by a frost.  Or maybe they are gardening where it never freezes.?????????

I need summer cover crops, for when something gives up or finishes up in July or August. That's when I'll use cowpeas. The rest of the year I can use sugar snap peas. I guess "summer cover crops" sounds strange to the rest of you, but here it could be a real blessing. It's worth a try at least. Right now I'm watering empty dirt.  dangit

In the summer, I use buckwheat.  It is ready to turn under in about 30 days before it sets seeds.  I use it a lot between planting some crops.  For instance, if I am growing broccoli and it bolts but it is still not warm enough for sweet potatoes, I will sow some buckwheat and turn it under before planting the sweet potatoes or use it for mulch.
