If you have your soil right, oats are hard to beat for a fall shootem up plot.

If you throw 5 lbs of inoculated ladino clover in with it you will have a good stand next year with barely any work.

Another vote for oats, Buck Forage Oats, with clover. I would go ahead and do a soil test and apply lime as needed as soon as you can.

Winter rye would be another good choice. It puts on a lot of growth in the fall for our northern climates.
