blooming garden in the dead of winter
After DH built me some winter garden boxes (removable, on top of my square foot boxes), I planted them with onions and chard and spinach last fall. I meant to go out and water them, but, well . . . it’s been a bitter winter here in Utah. I’m kind of lazy and don’t like to be cold. I just never even looked in there since about November. Yesterday, March 28, I opened up the box and look what I found:

You can read how to make these grow boxes in Eliot Coleman’s Four Season Harvest.
