160,000 four leaf clovers: That's a lot of luck

Full story: Chicago Tribune

If finding a four-leaf clover brings the luck of the Irish, Edward Martin Sr. of Cooper Landing, Alaska , just might be a full-blooded leprechaun.

The thing is, a four-leaf clover is a genetic mutation, so if that genetic strain carries over, there of COURSE will be more of them. A whole field of them, in fact, i.e., 160,000 worth.

I wonder if he's colorblind. I have found a lot of four leaf clovers in my life (though nowhere near this guy) and am red/green deficient. I think it's easier for me to distinguish one clover from another.

I always find four leaf clovers ... but I feel like it's cheating because they grow in the same places every year. I find them in places I've never been, but every spring I go back to the patches I know there is luck to be found

I found 147 4 leaf clovers in 1 hour-not to mention that I have a patch of atleast 50 4 leaf clovers in my yard. NO ONE is allowed to touch this patch. I was looking this up, assuming I probably have a record. I have always been able to find them with little effort. 5,6 and 7 leaf and 1 8 leaf. Good luck with getting the record, but I don't guess you need it!

I find them like you find gum on New York's streets! It's crazy! and I don't have a patch like that but I've found over fifty four leaves and four or five five leaves and not just at my house but everywhere i go! I'm going to press them and put them into charms and sell them.

In about an hour or two, I found 66 4-leaf clovers, 17 five-leaf clovers, and 1 6-leaf clover. It seems that they occur in bunches. I'll find one, then many many more in the same 3 square feet or so. It's pretty interesting!

i've been collecting four leaf clovers for the passed month and i already have 110 four leaf clovers, 8 five leaf clovers, 3 six leaf clovers and one seven leaf clover. i try not to look for them too much, but they just kinda pop up close to me all over where i am. i've lost about 20 of them, i always forget to put them in my jar in the freezer or else i'd have more... i've always found them a lot, i'm glad to know other people find them as much as i do. i only count them as lucky if i find them by themselves when i wasn't trying to find them, so about half of mine i count lucky

I found about 25 within 5 minutes of looking. I called some friends over and together we probably found over 50 in only a few minutes. I've always found four-leaf clovers too. Except I always just gave them away. I don't really see them as lucky, just cool.

They definitely seem to grow in patches....is there some kind of online group for people that find four-leaf clovers a lot?

I love hearing about others that are also inclined and passionate about finding four leaf clovers. I've been finding large amounts of 4+ leaf clovers since a young age, and just the past few years actually started placing them in a photo album. 4 Leaf clovers seem to find me....I went to walk the dog this morning and walked back to the house in ten minutes with 30 of them. My album since last summer has a little over 500, that were acquired while walking the dog.
I do think that finding the clovers is an art. It definitely requires a special passion as well. When I look for clovers, I find tremendous peace and satisfaction. I wouldn't give up my clover fascination for anything. It's GREAT to hear others enjoying it as well. I'm addicted to finding 4 leaf clovers!
