Thank you for your question. Since cover crops serve a variety of purposes, there are many options. You may want to protect the soil from water saturation, reduce weeds, or provide nutrients to the soil. The following Extension article explains the purposes and plant choices for each: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/fs304.pdf

Now, you have plenty of time to decide what to plant. Good luck!
