Clover Lawn

DSC_0004We have been encouraging white clover to grow in the lawn to attract honey bees. As an added bonus clover enriches the soil, stays green during drought and the grubs (famous in Plainville, CT’s soil) don’t eat the root system. I realized today that the plan worked! We have been rewarded by many honey bees coming to gather nectar and pollen. The lawn is a bit high and Xav was out mowing the edges in preparation for mowing the whole property but I noticed one then two then… you get the point… honey bees so we will let the clover continue to bloom for a bit longer.
