My Little Cold Frame 8: Last Salad

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

We’ve eaten our last salad from the greens I planted in March. They were pretty toasted and starting to bolt. I gathered them for one meal for the whole family—human and feathered. Not much gets wasted on My Little Farm in Town!

After harvesting and a little weeding, I refreshed each side of the frame with compost. I’ll give the frame a rest while I tend other parts of the garden, until it is time to plant again in hot, dry August for fall and winter harvest. My goal is a fresh salad for Christmas! Begonia

The remnant ready for the final harvest. (Sounds vaguely apocalyptic!)

Compost!

The compost refreshes the frame. I am doing it now so that I don't forget. I'll also cover the frame again so that nutrients don't leach away before I plant in August.
