I am starting to create some new beds for gardening in a new location. Was wondering if I plant some green manure crops (buckwheat, rye, whatever) and turn them in a couple of months from now with some leaves, maybe some peat, etc. will those nutrients still be good and available to the plants say, maybe 4 or 5 months from now next spring?
I realize you need to wait to plant things in freshly amended soil for a few weeks before the nutrients are available, but how about waiting a really long time? Would like to get a head start now if possible. Will the goodies still be available to the plants or should I just wait til next spring to do these things? Thx.
