Q.I’ve taken a year off from growing garlic and I want to plant some this fall…my question is: is there anything I can plant in
my garlic bed such as winter rye, etc. that will grow this summer and I can till back into the soil before I plant my garlic this fall? thanks!!

I would recommend any legume, such as peas, beans, peanuts, or anything that helps put nitrogen back into the soil, actively. This is the fasted way to prepare your soil for planting using other plants. Not only do they actively put in atmospheric nitrogen though root nodules, but they will also contribute once tilled in as well, passively.
