Victoria, I've never thought about mixing clover into a smoothie. How does it taste?

I listen to Jack too. I will have to look into the other one. Thanks for your help. Let me know if you use it in salads.

Why did you choose that particular clover? Is it a perennial or an annual? Sorry for all the questions, just trying to figure out the best route to go.

Aaron, will that grow in the area I'm in?

I haven't had it tested, I do know that for the last probably 5 years the crops that have been grown in that particular area have been corn and tomatoes. It gets tilled with a tractor a couple of times a year (not by us). This year it got tilled and not planted with anything and it was successful in growing a wonderful patch of goatheads.
I listened to a couple of different podcasts that had mentioned using perennial low growing cover crops as a way to repair soil and maintain weeds. They had said that the perennial crops were better because you didn't have to keep replanting.

I was planning on using the cover crop to repair nutrient depletment, weed control and various other issues. As far as planting new crops we would be using a no till method and hand planting. We're hoping that the cover crop would help with water compaction of the soil and be used for better absorption of the water.

We're in Southern Utah and are looking for a low growing cover crop for the garden this year. What are your recommendations? Our soil is rock hard, so our onions, carrots, beets and potatoes didn't do very well this year. We will be doing some mulch layering this year to hopefully "liven up" our dirt.

Wow 10 feet tall. I guess if it were in a house it wouldn't seem as tall. We'll give it a go.

There is a stove pipe in the back, however it is not very tall. I will try that and see if it solves our problem.
