My Garden in the Grove

Dreaming of Clover

There’s a sunny patch of ground at the side of the driveway and old garage that we would like to turn into a butterfly garden. It’s been a weed patch for years, but the husband cleared out the weeds and grass this week, a first big step in creating that special garden. However, we’re not ready to start the butterfly garden yet, so we decided to put in a “cover crop” to help enrich that soil and get rid of the weedy wilderness look. We have a bag of Crimson Clover seeds and decided to toss them out there and see what happens. If they don’t grow, no problem. If they do…well, the patch will look a lot better over the winter and into the spring!
