    I'm using alfalfa because it's a robust herb and stabilizes soil, plus makes great mulch when mowed. I also plant it around my trees, where I don't mow, to add a little lushness to the foot.

    The flavor is best in early spring when the temps are still cool, I eat mine in salads. I love the flavor, tastes like raw green beans.

    I don't grow with it but thanks to your video I'm now certain a local farmer does. I just located a main food source for the whitetail deer I'll be hunting this week. thank you

    Alfalfa is a broad leaf plant not a grass. Hay is a combination of grass and Alfalfa pure Alfalfa or pure grass and can be mixed some times mixed with clover. and is used as livestock feed, for animals such as Cattle sheep goats and chickens and so on.

    Joy, it depends where you live. I only cut 2x a year. It doesn't make the best mulch when dried. If you want something to put in your compost, use comfrey. The plant gets really big (3 feet by 3 feet.)

    Alfafla is pretty hardy and doesn't need alot of care. I may have a picture of its bloom but they are really dainty. If you grow it, I would grow it make compost tea, eat, or give to animals as feed. I only grow it to eat or make compost tea. It doesn't seem to be invasive.

    Thanks for your video. I would like to grow alfalfa for using as mulch in my garden and for putting it into my compost piles. If I grow a patch of alfalfa, how many times can I expect to cut it down to ground level each growing season? What soil conditions does it prefer? Does it require a good soil or a lot of care or water to grow. Do you have any pictures of it flowering. Can it become invasive? Have you heard of anyone growing it for this purpose? Thanks for your comments.
