Is the idea that winter rye will help the plants blend in?
Also, if one plants clover at the beginning of the season, could winter rye essentially be planted on top of it in August? Could you maybe cut out a few chunks of clover and throw rye in it its place?
If hereafter any highly cultured, poetical nation shall lure back
to their birthright, the merry May-day gods of old; and livingly
enthrone them again in the now egotistical sky; on the now un-
haunted hill; then be sure, exalted to Jove’s high seat,
the great Sperm Whale shall lord it.
