I want to share a great maintenance and recovery tool for vegetable beds, and simply it’s growing legumes. Green beans, summer peas, snap peas, black beans, all these things make very good nitrogen fixers. They’re legumes. Any time you’re doing a brand new bed or trying to resuscitate a bed that maybe has been neglected for a while, plant some bean seeds. The big thing you want to remember is when you’re removing these things at the end of their season, you cut the roots off and leave the roots there. That will leave the nitrogen that’s been fixed in the soil. Over time, that will become soil and your garden will be good as new.
