Cover crops can be planted either right after you harvest or around your other plants before the harvest to give your fruits and veggies an excellent chance of coming in before the end of the growing season. If you opt to plant them before the harvest, you'll want to make sure you time everything right. Plant hardier varieties about a month before frost is expected in your area, and put their less cold-hardy counterparts in the ground a month before that.
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.
