I'm trying to come up with a list of plants that suck up excess nitrogen so we can put it in a BB for the PEP program.  What are your favorites?

Here are a few on the list already:
Grass
Corn (yes I know it's a grass)
Nettle
Rhubarb
Asparagus???

Tomatoes and cucurbits like musk melon and squashes for example. Those vining plants are considered heavy feeders and really love them some nitrogen.
