Cold Frame - Week 2

Well, the first day of spring brought a foot of snow to Maine. It was, surprisingly, still warm enough to put the cold frame on the porch the next day.

I was worried about being able to keep the temperature even - we had kind of a cold snap - but things seem to be progressing. The parsley decided to come out to play, though the sprouts were still too small to get a good picture. Here are the kale and shallots week two.

Shallots - Week 2

However this rather low-tech experiment works out, I've been enjoying seeing something green outside my sewing room window on these early spring days!

Christina's come up with some really cool designs to add to our collection: a whale tea towel, hydrangea tea towel, and allium tea towel. We hope to have them listed in our Etsy Shop soon. We'll post an announcement on our facebook page when they're ready, so please join us there. Don't forget to let us know how your gardening projects are going!

Hope your week's a good one!
