Snow thoughts and other conundrums

Among other things, I teach classes about 3 (and 4) season vegetable gardening, now as a volunteer, but have done so for a least a decade prior to this.

The last three years, my raised bed gardens in Western NC have been blasted by REALLY cold temperatures, thanks to the polar vortex, which took most winter hardy veggies out. So I was able to start fresh in late winter/spring -- not a bad thing.

Hmm, this year, I've got spinach and kale tucked under Remay, but temperatures in the teens, again?  Covered with snow.  I'm not hopeful, but we'll see.

This was my last spinach harvest, before covering the beds up again with Remay.


Quite tasty!
