Hyacinth Bean is great at inter-cropping for nitrogen fixation during the summer. It is very disease resistant, very drought tolerant, and can adapt to almost any environment. Use caution since it is perennial and can only be terminated with a hard freeze or deep tillage.
Flax makes a fantastic cover crop if planted in the very early spring. If you do not get several hard freezes after planting, then you probably planted too late. It will sprout before weeds and then choke them out with its thick root mat. Since it has so few leaves, it allows the sun to warm the soil thereby avoiding the problem most cover crops have. Mow 2 weeks before planting. If planted thick enough, weed suppression can last 4-6 months.
