I may have posted this before, so I could be getting old timers disease. Sorry if I did. Anyway I planted buckwheat in where I dug out potatoes this year. This buckwheat is 4 weeks old now, about two feet tall. Going to flower soon. So, I will disk it and plow it under with in the next two weeks.
It's supposed to be very good for the ground, and help control site worm, which are getting into my potatoes. The pet bunny just loves the leaves and stocks. The leaves are very good for a salad also. I hope to grow more next year.

I've used it as a cover crop in the past!
