Q.When and Where to Plant Greens
Anonymous added on June 11, 2011 | Answered
I once heard the saying “after greens, plant beans”. . . something to do with nitrogen. Have you heard this before?

Greens, being green and leafy, take a lot of nitrogen from the soil. Old time gardeners might not have known about the chemistry involved, but without all that scientific stuff they figured out that legumes fixed nitrogen back into the soil. Organic gardening at its best!
