To grow clover or to grow clover not

I passed this plot the other day.

Was impressed with all this green lush clover.

We did some trials ourselves with clover a couple of years ago. It never got to look this good though.

And now it never will.

We have decided to stop the clover trials.

Fight for water
It turned out that it sucks a lot of water in the ground. In warm summers, the vines compete with the clover about access to the water.

In 2016 our plot of Crochettes suffered due to the July heatwave. Clover - even poor - certainly did not help.

So we are done. Been there. Out again.

The weeds that grow naturally will take over.

Sewing the clover

The clover is alive

Goodbye green pastures
