That sums up part of our weekend. And now we have rain. We’re so looking forward to the snow in our forecast. But on Saturday we savored the sun and were out in the yard getting some good work done before the ground became too mucky (because picking up Jasper’s dooky when its frozen is way better than when it is sun-softened. ‘Nuff said.) After moving a bunch of wood into our porch L1 and I cracked open the coldframe for the first time in a couple of months.
I was so happy with all that was nestled within.
The red salad bowl and the black seeded simpson lettuces were going strong, the little broccoli plants looked like they had faired the frigid temperature well, and the wee carrot seedlings looked like they were still alive. And the random red and green leafed plant is doing well, too. Anyone know what it is?!?
I’ll have to start picking the lettuce soon before I forget about it and the coldframe is buried in snow again. And it’s time to start planning for this year’s garden…. I have a date with my spreadsheet, catalogs, and garden map this week.
