So the moment is fast approaching for our cover crop of clover to be cut and the roots tilled in to the soil.
The theory is that the nitrogen fixing nodules in the clover roots will enrich our soil. AND the plants protected the soil from being compacted by all the winter rains.
Here’s the growth….
It’s an impressive pile of biomass is it not?
However, I was really hoping to see it bloom before we have to chop it down.
I wandered out there yesterday afternoon to have a look see. I poked around and saw nothing but green.
But then something caught my eye in the middle of the patch…
It’s the only one I could find so far. I hope the rest follow quickly! If nothing else, I will leave a couple of feet square of it growing to see the show. I think we have a few more weeks to go.
Hurry up clover blossoms!
Time’s a wastin’!
