It's A Stretch


Recommended planting time for Crimson Clover is early fall or six weeks before first frost. We are nowhere near that time frame. But we planted some in the lot anyway and we'll see what happens. So far, no true leaves, which probably makes its survival through the winter a stretch. But right now there's no prediction of freezing temps even through next weekend and whatever we can add to the dry rocky ground the better it will be, even if it's just a little wisp of something that dies and decays.

I think you nailed it. Weather is good -you'll have a true set in a week! Just the low sun working against them.

Where's the new plot?

Fingers crossed. (tend to think nothing will survive until it does..call me an anxious gardener with confidence issues.) Right now mum's the word on the location publically. Could be any old vacant lot in a city with many.

Could be, couldn't it.
