Paddock Colorado has annual ryegrass and crimson clover seeded together.

The crimson clover adds in nitrogen which boosts the growth of the ryegrass. The mixture is healthier and tastier for the cows than the ryegrass alone. And so on.

But the truth is I seeded crimson clover to get these lovely deep red flowers. Don’t tell anyone else I’d have to hand back my paysan card.

  2. … and what is she on about. Is not crimson clover clover? What’s with the “and?”

  3. When I hit a page that has deep logic in the title, I expect more that 4 sentences. Your sarcasm is my let down.

  4. I’m so jealous! There’s a field near us that is pure crimson clover every spring, and I literally drool over it! But I guess we would have to seed it first, wouldn’t we? Hopefully we can do that this fall. The problem is, the clover blooms in the spring so that’s when I think about it! One of the problems with getting old and forgetful . . .
