Re: Got a ? about clover
I have planted clover plots in the spring and fall. I believe fall is the best time to plant and a cover crop is a good idea. Fall planting will reduce the weeds that grow over the life time of your plot.
However, I did plant a clover plot last spring and I used brassica as cover crop. The plot has done well, but I feel I spend a little more time on weed patrol for this plot.
As RB said, I would recommend adding chicory and be very careful which types of rye you add. A perennial rye will take over your plot.
