A coldframe greenhouse is a great way to add another 4 months to your growing season. Last Fall, we enjoyed continued growth through early December, that’s almost 2 months after the first frost thanks to this handy structure. Towards the end of this Winter, we had noticed that some of our arugula and spinach had survived through the bitter cold. Check out how big they are now.
They have even gone to seed. There is 1 lonely carrot that made it through the Winter as well among this bunch.
As soon as it began to warm up at the beginning of March, we planted out many more rows of our favorite salad greens.
We are happy to report that we’ve had ample amounts of salad pickings for many servings each week. Typically, we wouldn’t plant these varieties until early May. These extra 2 months at the beginning of the season sure are great, especially since I have a slight addiction to Arugula.
Tomorrow night…spinach pie. Mmmmmmm
