It’s cold and it’s frosty, but there is work to be done in the garden! With plan in hand, we’ve been constructing trellises and temporary “greenhouses” over the beds where some of the early cool-season crops will grow. The heavy plastic will help warm the ground in preparation for planting out the collards, early lettuces, kale and more. Having these beds against a fence makes a handy way to create the little warming tents. We staple the plastic at the top and use heavy boards and bricks to secure it at the ground level–making for easy access and adjustment!
