|What do you plant for a winter cover? Do you rotate your winter cover crops? Multiple types in a mix? Do you till in, mow, or winter kill?|

|Crimson clover here. Love it! |
And in the late winter/early spring when it flowers it really brings in the pollinators. Although it is at its nutritional best to turn under before flowering I can't but help leave some areas to flowers, choosing to turn under particular areas on an as-needed basis during the early planting season.

|How does it handle 15-20 degree farenhite?|

|When sown early enough (Sept) it'll establish and root system that will handle those temps. There have been years when it was sown later and didn't put its roots down deep enough and tended to suffer, yellowed out or died.|
You're in pretty much the same zone as me, Phillip, so I imagine it would do you justice.
