Beans & legumes have nodules on their rootlets that will pump nitrogen from the environment into your soil -- making a more nitrogen-rich soil.
Would be great to plant these either near heavy nitrogen feeders like: tomatos, corn & cruciferous vegetables. Or to rotate your crops and plant beans where the heavy nitrogen feeding veggies were planted the year before.

Goldenrod is the best bee flower that I know of.

Hey that is even better if the sweet white clover attracts the bees AND enriches the soil. Good gardening tip. Thanks!

Sweet White Clover is another member of the bean family that is good to replenish the soil without any maintenance, and it attracts tons of bees.
