  3. All those greens look so good. I have to go out and pick some spinach. It really is growing well right now. I'm worried that it might bolt prematurely, but I really hope not.

    1. I'm going to plant some more spinach after this weather settles a bit. Then it won't matter if the overwintered spinach bolts. I hope yours doesn't bolt

  4. I am with Sue. I do know (approximately) where you live but luckily you are too far away for me to come visit that spinach patch. It looks delicious though and since I once again did not have a successful overwintered spinach crop, I am looking at my tiny spring crop that is emerging and cheering them to grow on as fast as possible. :D

    Your collard and kale harvests are amazingly abundant and varied this week too.

  5. Oh show off. I know you are way ahead of me but. I will change hard freeze with you tonight. We are to be 17. Am having a difficult time keeping one greenhouse warm. Won't get much sleep tonight checking on it.

    1. I just had to show off that spinach Wilderness. It's been a long time since I had a real spinach harvest. We are supposed to get down to 26 tonight. It's so windy right now that I am expecting to see Dorothy & Toto any minute. I hope that you get a little sleep and everything makes it through OK.

  8. All of your greens look amazing. I think I need to bump up the manure on my soil; some of my greens were stunted and I think it's a lack of nitrogen.

    1. Nitrogen could be the issue. I work the beds at home pretty hard. I add compost to the beds at least twice a year and add some manure occasionally. Poo is a gardeners best friend!

  9. Wonderful greens harvest and I am especially envious of your spinach. Were all of these grown in the cold frame?

    1. The greens were grown in the cold frame beds. The spinach was overwintered uncovered in a regular bed and did well. The winter was mild though.

  11. I love the colour of lacinato kale - a beautiful slatey green (or that's what I'm calling it anyway.)
