OK, I'm making progress. I need to reach a point where I can "top everything off" with woodchips, but I need to keep adding nitrogen (urine/coffee grounds). I'm at around a foot deep of coarsely shredded leaves. I asked a much better gardener than me about what I should plant. He recommended legumes. I'm wondering what is fast-growing and generates a lot of green biomass while fixing nitrogen.
