Jean Simpson visited the raised beds at the garden to see how the spinach crop was doing. Things were looking great going into 2014. Cover crops were hardy as well. Winter with snow and frigid temps has now arrived. Those row covers are critical to crop success.
Row cover was removed to reveal a perfect kale patch! Since it is still young, Jean and Paul added straw mulch and wished it a happy growing season.
