The photo shows our use of raised beds, hoops and row covers in the greenhouse -- this helps our plants survive below-zero temperatures that can arrive in April. In addition, we will be installing a high-efficiency woodstove that will heat the greenhouse during the night. Then I won't need to use my sleeping bags to cover our baby plants!
In the meantime, the snow is off the garden and soon I'll be releasing the asparagus and rhubarb from their straw mulch. It's exciting to see the first green shoots appear in the garden -- we are looking forward to that! I'll also be preparing the soil in our new hoophouse, ready to receive our peppers and cucumbers. Lots of work, lots of fun!
