cheryl,

this is my cover crop for the corn, limas, and okra. it is non~edible but puts nitrogen into the soil...you're welcomed.

they have a lovely smooth quality about them...this is my first year having them...it is a cover crop for the corn, limas, and okra.

marnie,

i think they are so pretty...this is my first experience with them too. they are my cover crop for corn, limas and okra. it adds nitrogen into the soil. i didn't realize they would have such a lovely bloom.
thanks for letting me use your quote...i put it on my side with a photo of yours and a link to your blog when you click the picture.
