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.
