Hopeful Spinach Garden

My hopeful spinach garden with my small greenhouse for plants made from my old shower doors down at the end covering my geraniums, overwintered in the basement, a small patch of order in the chaos of my garden.

So I took a cue from the crazy-weather-we’re-having and got to work in my garden this week. Time to straighten up that picket fence, clean the last of the overgrowth from the upper part of the garden, and remake this long narrow bed along the fence in the sunniest spot in the garden, straighten out the brick border and path, turn and rake the soil, add compost, and get it ready to lay the reclaimed storm windows over it after I plant in it. When the cold returns for a few days I can cover with plastic, tarps and blankets. The soil never really froze so under the windows it will be gathering and storing heat.

I did all the other things and yesterday I planted three types of spinach. Each has a different growth time so I should get spinach well into spring. As long as I can keep the deer out of it. Now that this is done and I’ve gotten the garden started I’ll get back to my fence, add the chicken wire at the top, and hope for the best.

I’ve worked out the winter tensions and warmed with the sun.

Soon enough it will be spring. I’m looking forward to the march of the flowers.

And the warm and sun were so wonderful yesterday, I took so many photos after this and between webinars–talk about a contrast between digital and analog, or plugged and unplugged!

I got it done before the rich spring rain, which is softly falling now.
