Q.Leave Veggie Garden Unplanted Over Summer
I want to let my veggie garden go unplanted this summer but would like to put nutrients back into the soil. What can/should I plant to help the soil become more healthy? Last year my tomatoes didn’t ripen well at all. This would be the first in about 7 years I won’t plant vegetables there.
