 I gave Lynn some subterranean clover seed to plant at Creek House last year.  She planted it in the area we weren’t going to plant that year. It reseeded itself and grew to a thick matt of lush green growth. I am planting tomatoes, peppers, and the Three Sisters with a substitution. I will use sweet potatoes instead of squash in this living mulch. Sweet potatoes form a dense matt of vines and leaves and are  allelopathic, a living mulch.  I use my heavy hoe to cut a 18” circle in the clover. I can usually pull out a plug of clover that can be used as mulch from the holes..  The Sub clover has already bloomed and drilled it’s flowers into the soil forming a little nodules of seeds. This is going to be very interesting… more later.
