Mammoth Red Clover Cover Crop overwinters and provides nitrogen

A cold front has made me think of fall. I have some bare places in the garden and it's a good time to start a cover crop that will over winter and provide nitrogen when tilled under in the spring. Mammoth red clover can be sown in spring, summer or fall. It can take temperatures down to 10 degrees and grows to 3 feet high. This clover does well in clay and acid soils. You can also make tea from the flowers.
