Don't forget the inoculant! Peas and Beans are among the crops that add nitrogen to your soil through an association with nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Inoculate the roots to make sure they are present in your soil! While peas and beans will still give you a crop without it, it has been shown that plants yield heavier and perform better when inoculated.
