  1. Today tom became a botanist. He came up to show me a piece of clover and he showed me the nodules. He explained these help fix nitrogen in the soil. I know his grandad would be very impressed.

    1. Fantastic!!! We are soooo enthusiastic about clover and farming! Our new microscope has been a hit and we are seeing evidence of the nitrogen in our testing!!! That is fantastic he is sharing with you!
