A cover drop of mustard or radish is supposed to work better, you just do the cover crop in cooler weather and let it rot in the soil after cutting back. Till the tops into the ground.
Thanks, good to know! I'm interested more in companion planting, and I did plant some French marigolds last year, but then again I grew food crop mostly in containers. Nematodes seem to have hit some of the folks in my area rather hard. I've always heard marigolds, then was seeing some different varieties, dwarfs, different color patterns, etc.
