New Growth and Survivors

March 14th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Despite the snow/rain/snow/hail/freezing temperature merry-go-round we’ve been on lateley there are still signs of life in the garden. The cold frames I built last month are serving the little seedlings well, protecting them from the below freezing temperatures we’ve had. The pic above is one of the cold frames that I planted first. This box contains radish, spinach, mache, green onions and arugula. All of which are peeking thier little green heads above the earth at this point.

I’m looking forward to some fresh spinach…

And been doing some more reading of my “Preserving Food Without Canning or Freezing” book, which offers several ways of preserving radishes. I think I may try all of them as our radish crops tend to be excessive.

The lone broccoli plant made it through this last deep freeze as well and it looks like we will be having some very early spring broccoli here in about a month, it already has a small head on it.

And there are other, more general signs that the sun is indeed coming – if still a few months off.
