How about something that fixes nitrogen in the soil!? This will cut out quite a bit of care that would normally be needed. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/what-are-legumes.htm

Thank-you, was thinking clover this year, although a bean/pea crop would help with cost, however my fear there is deer and such would trample the milkweed.
