2017 gardening season begins

 

2017gardengot these cool cloches at Gardeners Supply.  Much more convenient than row covers.  Don’t know how cold they protect to, we’ve barely gotten into the 20’s this winter.  On the left, it is covering some chard plants that are overwintering and they are doing well.  The rest of that bed is garlic.  On the right just planted some cool weather seeds for spring:   closest in, mesculun greens, heirloom lettuce, broccoli raab. far cloche has just a little bit for escarole and broccoli raab.  Will likely plant broccoli in the rest of the space. 

Ran out of time today, but with a week of rain and snow coming in, wanted to get this done.

      That’s why I had to rush out quick and get this going today. The rest of the garden is a neglected mess, I don’t even know if my lettuce and broccoli planted in the fall are alive! Oh well, things will grow whether we tend to them or not!
