The only way we’re going to grow anything this cold spring is with the help of floating row covers, and lots of them! The starts we planted are growing, with kale, lettuce, bok choi, spinach and chard doing their best under the conditions.

Thank goodness for the hoophouse! We pick the spinach hard on the Wednesday work party, and it’s grown back in one week. Lettuce is very happy, and now the kale is coming on. You can see the difference warmth makes!

The bok choi loves it in the hoophouse, too.  The first rotation is already harvested and we planted more spinach starts.

Lucky us, the hail storm in those threatening clouds didn’t make it to the garden! Now the plum blossoms are bravely blooming. Time for bees, and hope!
