Crimson Clover Cover crop 1

This is my favorite cover crop for vigorous growth. Being a Legume, it fixes Nitrogen from the air, and makes in available in the soil when tilled in. Unlike white and red clovers, it grows quickly in the Spring or Fall. This is my grain plot, behind the fenced gardens. The seed is quite expensive, but it is well worth it for improving the soil.
