Legumes

Legume gumption: When in doubt, inoculate! 

Grow legumes to feed the soil and the family. Bacteria on legumes not only work without pay but pay for the privilege. Inoculated legumes can use nitrogen from  the soil air; other crops must depend upon the limited  stock of nitrates in the soil. Gardening without  legumes is like writing checks on the bank without  having made deposits there.
