Cover crops--too late now?

15 years ago

Hi all,

I'm in zone 7 as mentioned above and wonder if it's too late to consider planting hairy vetch or another cover crop on my raised veggie beds this year?

I had so many things that were still producing up until this week--green beans and tomatoes, lettuce, spinach--that I hated to yank them all out just to plant a cover.

Can I still do it now (with *snow* predicted for tonight here in Virginia!)?

thanks so much
