Many, many times previously, I’ve mentioned my prefered ground cover of buckwheat and clover. Since even immature buckwheat helps soil structure, I tried to sneak in one last planting before frost with seeds from the earlier plants:
To be completely honest, I’ve planted a few different clovers and I’m not longer aware which variety is depicted above. It is either dutch white, crimson or medium red clover.
Since the first frost occurred, all of the buckwheat is gone as I explained here. Yet the clover is still thriving and a deep green!

Yes, my clover is doing well, too. Mind you, there hasn’t been any frost here yet. The buckwheat has all but finished now, though.
I’ve got a new groundhog pest snatching up the clover…again. Otherwise it is doing well! Do you save the seed from buckwheat?
I let the buckwheat self-seed… That includes seeds which have got into the compost heap, as it has never got hot enough to kill them 🙂
