June is busting out all CLOVER!!

June is busting out all CLOVER!!  There’s Buffalo Clover, White Clover, Rabbit’s foot Clover, Yellow Clover, Hop Clover, Crimson Clover and the queen of them all (and my favorite), Trifolium pratense, Red Clover.

It’s good to know that when we are outside, playing, and get an insect sting or bite, Red Clover is a quick, easy, inexpensive, safe and very effective remedy.  Just crush (or chew) a Red Clover flower-head and apply it to the wound; and in seconds, the pain, itch and swelling subsides.

Red Clover is a very familiar weed; introduced to this country in the mid 1600’s, which grows, abundantly, throughout the United States and is rich in protein.  We can find it in fields, along roadsides, all over the lawn, even between cracked pavement.  Red Clover stands taller than most of its relatives, from 6 – 16 inches, on thick and somewhat hairy stems.
