Yes, legumes boost the protein levels and they suck free fertilizer out of the sky, depositing it in your soil. We also plant kale, rape, beets, turnips and other things out in our pastures. Caution on buckwheat for UV sensitivity and such. We also plant pumpkins, sunflowers, sunchokes and such in our winter paddocks which make next fall's forage.
