Today we cleaned up the vegetable garden and planted field beans to enrich the soil with #nitrogen.
These beans, called "favini" in Italian, are sacrificial: Next spring, during flowering, the plants will be cut and left on the earth (#mulching). The roots, rich of nitrogen, will remain in the ground.
This is an old technique which has been used in this region to fertilize olive trees, but we will try it for tomatoes.
