Red clover, red clover...

Last winter I planted several cover crops. I waited too late in the season though, and the clover didn't have a chance to bloom. The annual rye grass looked awesome all winter, but never did die because it never got cold. I had a great patch of green all winter, but now can't get rid of the stuff no matter how hard I try.

Here is one little seed of red clover that fell into the crack in my raised bed and prevailed. 

Beautiful! It was hard to capture on my iPhone camera, but it's a very deep red. Looks like a raspberry from afar. I was considering ditching the idea of cover crops for this year but now I'm reconsidering.
