There are babies in the garden! Giant winter spinach is growing under lights, and we’re gearing up to start kale, lettuce, chard and more spinach in seed blocks. The first garlic shoots poked up through the mulch. Spring is coming!
We just keep on loving our hoophouse, growing slowly but offering a second cutting about three weeks after the first one. Much appreciation also to the steady and generous work of volunteers willing to brave cold temperatures, turning over the rye cover crops that make compost into such beautiful organic matter for our soil!
We’ve even had good enough weather to have our picnic lunches outside, with fresh salad greens from the hoophouse, and spinach, arugula, kale and cilantro from the field. (That’s olive oil for the salad, lest you think we’re having too much fun!)
