Answer: Cover crops are a great way to add organic matter to your soil. Technically speaking, nearly any grass or legume can be used as a cover crop. Buckwheat is a popular choice for home gardens, partly because it is quite easily chopped and tilled under. It does not survive freezing weather, but it develops quickly so you may be able to grow two or even three successive plantings of buckwheat in one season.
