Warming The Beds

Covering the finished bed boxes with fiberglass panels helps warm the soil before planting. After planting, the panels will remain in place until the greens are mature enough to be exposed to snow and freezing temperatures, which we can experience here until early June. The varieties of greens we grow are hardy enough to survive snow & freezing temps once they are established. Posted by Hello

Those spring greens are going to taste wonderful, aren't they?! I spent a glorious morning preparing and planting 3 small beds with my spring greens. I also started some seeds indoors last week and they're under the grow lights now. We can get still get snow through the end of May, but by then it's too hot and too late to plant. Keep those pictures coming!

Thanks for your comments here Peg, they're always appreciated. It's nice to know someone's visiting. We planted these beds today (Monday, 3/7)and now we're off to the feed store to wheel home a bale of hay and a bundle of wood chips. Might be some fun pictures posted later.
