    I haven’t watched the video but based on your thoughts, I’m responding. I think I learned a long time ago, so not sure of how valid the knowledge is….It is my understanding that nitrogen-fixing plants do so through their roots as they grow. That’s why peas and corn are good companions….the peas fix nitrogen into the soil and the corn benefits from it. Once they die, the benefits are gone except that the fiber of the plant will feed the soil if it is returned back to the soil.

    I like this fellow and used to follow him, but some of what he says either doesn’t apply to southern gardens or the conclusions don’t always follow good logic. I think he is very helpful for folks that live farther north from us and I have recommended his channel a time or two. I’ll watch the video later.
