Thanks! I should have said this clover is yellow clover. But when spring comes does it green up again and resume growing?
For bri80: "Is the ground frozen?" Well, yes and no. Right now the ground may be freezing at night but only to a depth of maybe an inch. But, the next day it usually thaws out. Here we have quite a disparity between daytime and night time temps.
This is a small bed I created last spring but I never grew vegetables there yet. My first crop was buckwheat that I dug under; then planted black eyed peas that I dug under; and finally this yellow clover. Hope to grow a corn crop there next year!
