Great Cover Crop

I took a chance on this last winter and loved it. It was low growing and extremely hardy - handled zero degrees a couple nights with no problem. Very easy to remove or till under in the spring. We used the tender leaves for salads (great all winter). Also loved the cute white and pink flowers.
