Mr Muscleman’s 2019 cold-frame re-build project is done!

Re-used wood, serendipitously acquired aluminium frames and some fresh plexiglass make us all set for growing winter greens.

Little nuggets of gold, still in their papery thin jackets. And the orange outline of yet another pumpkin hiding in our cold frame.

Throwback to last Saturday, what feels like a lifetime ago. Blame it on the weather.

It’s that time of the year again, when the sweet potato has had enough of the cold frame and tries to make a run for it. Not today, potato. Not today.

Look at the rye in cold frame nr2! We had no inkling of the condition of the soil, so we planted rye and yellow mustard as green manure crops. With winter being as soft as it was, these crops are still thriving.

Tender, juicy, tasty (homegrown) spinach.

Just stirring it into a pot of simmering tomato-ey lentils (which we will partly eat as such, and which will partly disappear into some veggie lasagna for later).

Have I said often enough how I love our coldframe (because it produces so much early spring goodness)?

Mixed salad greens that are beyond delicious (+ love our coldframe!!)

There was approximately a window of 2 seconds of sunlight today and I used it to snap this pic. Then proceeded to enjoy the sight of spinach growing in our cold frame.
