chicken poo is very high in nitrogen. Thats what I use for my sweet corn patch. Works wonders. Also do a tea from the poo later during growth.

alfalfa is a legume isn't it? You could use that as well. Adding legumes is a great idea. I never thought of that. Legumes improve the soil for everything around them.

Where would you get clover seeds from? would you just dig it out of the yard?

Red Clover is a common sprouting seed. Any specialty grocery supplying seeds for sprouting, health food stores, farm seed vendor, burpee, park seed,
online sprouting suppliers like the sprout people dot com, etc.
Park for example has a cover crop mixture of field pea, red clover, fava bean and some others, for use as a green manure....
