|Under the mini hoop tunnel, this plant is now sprouting|
4 to 6-inch long baby leaves. So tender and prolific. Little
|Under the medium weight row cover|
this kale is also in very good shape.
Little winter damage and plenty of
4 to 8-inch long leaves. Not as many leaves
as the mini hoop tunnel kale.
|Lastly, the unprotected kale. We didn't have much of|
a snow cover to insulate it. There is a lot of winter kill, but
also a lot of new growth. It was the hardest hit, but will still
offer several months of harvest before it goes to seed.
|Ok, not a kale, but this bok choi overwintered|
under the medium weight row cover too.
Hardier than I thought and it's just starting to
bloom - yum!
|My spinach that overwintered under a mini |
hoop tunnel. I keep the plastic on top only to
keep the deer out. The ends are opened for
air circulation. I should just toss a row
cover over the bed to thwart the deer.
