I'd mix some buckwheat, rye and vetch. Maybe add some crimson clover
and if the ph is right some winter peas. You could sub wheat or barley
for the rye depending on what's available.
It's a little early to plant that mix here, but where you are it might
be right. I'd plant 8 weeks before a hard frost.
You will need to turn this under come spring.
