It’s 6pm., andI just finished covering up all my new planted veggies in preparation for a possible freeze tonight. This is the first of three or four nights our weatherman suddenly decided (after I checked the next 10 days to be sure a freeze wasn’t predicted) that we’re supposed to have in the coming week.
I took some pictures of the almost finished spring garden I wanted to share with you –
I have no clue whether these plants will actually make or not, but it’s a fun experiment. I have the celery plants, plus the spaghetti squash plants that I started inside on the window sill.
This box has romaine lettuce and spinach.
Here you can see the north side of the garden. I have broccoli, cauliflower, romaine lettuce, and spinach.
I also have red leaf lettuce. I finally got most of my labels made yesterday.
This shows a view of the whole garden looking to the west. There are six table-like raised bed planters, 3 in each row here.
Right now the garden looks like mis-matched wash fell of a laundry line. I spread five king-sized sheets of various colors over the plants and secured them with clothespins. I hope that this will be enough so help the little plants get through the freezes.
The forecast also is for rain all day tomorrow and tomorrow evening with a freeze again. My plan is to get the sheets off the plants in the morning and dry them in the dryer in preparation for securing them over the plants again tomorrow…
