Shoveled the foot of snow off of our defunct cold frame. Our lack of arable soil always leads us to a raised cold frame..which has never really worked the way good ol’ Eliot Coleman claims it will. I understand why..It doesn’t get the benefit of being in the earth and the relative warmth that comes from being in-ground. So, the soil is still pretty frozen, but some things were alive, some chard plants in the back, the claytonia and the mache. I was hoping to plant today, but after realizing that there were still ice crystals, I opted instead to clean it our of old debris and do a lot of laundry and finish our CSA flyer.
Wish me luck!
