Oh, with the layered Kugelgardening and my composting in place for over a year now, I think I'm good to go. I already thought of cover crop & have a couple pound of clover seeds for nixing nitrogen and managing weeds. And I also have been taking lots of cardboard, mulch and have TONS of dead leaves to create a weed free area in and around the two raised beds as well as my in-ground garden areas. I just haven't been down there enough lately due to my husband's health problems to get to the nitty-gritty of pulling the garden all together. Going down tomorrow to start that process. Just pulled off enough for bedding plants off my in-town garden to set out for my first planting out.Are you sure you don't want to grow some kind of cover crop to improve the soil at your BOL? You might get there to find that weeds have grown in your prepared soil or erosion has occured otherwise. The wind or birds can introduce weed seeds into your garden area. At least keeping a layer of mulch between your beds where you want things to grow later would help too. I have never heard of the term "kugelgardening" It seems like a good way to passively improve your soil year after year.
