Well, this week the weather has been all over the place! Warm and sunny mixed with cold and windy. We even got a couple of dustings of snow. Weird, weird winter.
The warmth and longer days have really affected our hoop houses and everything is looking even better than it did last week! Our spinach is getting huge and made for a nice single harvest on Sunday. While we're still harvesting some greens and spinach from under the grow lights, I think we've officially hit the time of year when the grow lights will be devoted to seedlings and the hoop houses will be devoted to sizing up everything we've over-wintered in them (spinach, lettuce, beets, carrots, turnips, radishes, chard and garlic).
While checking on the hoop houses over the weekend, I also threw a couple of new seeds in them. I just couldn't resist. It might be early still, but I figured it was worth a shot! I planted a row of dwarf sugar snap peas I had left over from last year and a row of golden beets from Mary. We'll see how it goes :-)
- Mixed Greens = 2 ounces
- Spinach = 2 ounce from under the grow lights
- Spinach = 2 ounces from the hoop house
- Eggs = 19
