Further emboldened by the sunshine and warm temperatures (what, worry that it's only Feb. 5, hmm), I proceeded to do a bit of final prep in the main vegetable garden beds, and made a first sowing of spinach, lettuce, mâché, turnips and beets. Hey, that's what succession planting is about, and I have PLENTY of seeds....
I'd amended all of the blocks in the fall with plenty of compost, so all they needed was a bit of loosening up.

Whether we get some final blasts of winter before spring is actually here -- well, I'd better order some floating row cover fabric.
