Time to Winterize!

A freeze is on the way next week, so David and I built a hoop structure to hopefully protect the greens I recently planted in bed #28. I hope to be able to pick greens all winter. The arugula, chard, bib lettuce, spinach, mesclun and carrots should be able to take a freeze, but will need to be covered if there’s a deep freeze. Here’s a photo of the structure:

Hoop Structure for Winterization

The cloth is rolled up to the center top board and will be rolled down and secured with binder clips when needed. It’s a fun experiment and we’ll see how it makes it through our winter this year.

Happy Gardening to all and have a safe Thanksgiving.
