Had a sweet raised bed garden last year with two beds of vegetables. I have decided not to plant this Spring because we will be out of state for three months during the summer. Should I do anything to the soil, plant some kind coverage or should I fill the beds with anything? Will probably plant some herbs and dark greens in late August when we return to SoCal. Thanks!

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong thread to start.

Hi and welcome to NGA!

You should plant a cover crop. I found a site that gives a list of the best adapted crops for your area.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
