This is our fall planted bed of spinach. It gives us a few leaves for great salads now, but will winter over and produce spinach very early in the spring. The plants do bolt quickly, but it is so wonderful to have spinach so early. We have had considerable critter trouble with our salad crops. That is the reason for the cage and the metal border around the bed. Selfish as we are we want to eat these greens ourselves.
Here we have a nice lettuce mix. We are enjoying having lettuce for salads now, knowing we will be using our calculator to see if we can afford it in the grocery store very soon.
