Red Clover

Red clover isn't really red.   It's pink.

K2 loves it.

It smells good.   It's pretty.  

See how there's a lighter green section in the center of the leaves?   I think that's neat. 

Right now a lot of the lower leaves are sort of gray looking from powdery mildew.   

Rumor has it that powdery mildew is caused by too damp conditions, but really it's caused by dry stress, which can be aggravated by heat.   Which is what we had here.   Which is why they've got powdery mildew.

  1. I've never noticed the scent before, but I do think they're very pretty, and the chickens like the leaves. :)
