When spring rolls around, you can expect some of your cover crops to come back, so be sure to mow them down or harvest them before they start to flower. You can harvest them by cutting them and using the cuttings as mulch or adding them to your compost heap. Pulling your cover crops will also allow you to plant your garden right away.
Cover crops often improve the fertility of the soil they're planted in, because they return essential nutrients to it. Planting them annually will definitely reduce the amount of natural amendments, compost, and manure you have to add to your soil. Note that the type of cover crop you choose to cultivate can also determine which nutrients are put into the ground. For example, planting a legume cover crop will add some nitrogen back into the dirt.
