Is anybody feeding their soil with green manure?

Last week I sowed oats in a new patch and also between my lilium and daffodil rows, germination pretty quick.

My garden is so small and it is full of perennials so I have never planted a green manure corp. Looks like you had good germination! I know that has to be great for developing the soil.

Same here; never had the space for an actual green manure crop, though I do try to plant and encourage legumes and various things like comfrey that add soil value.
