My 2.5-foot garden fence is completely covered now:
Temperatures are predicted to be quite cold over the weekend with nights below 0˚F. This is the longest stretch of winter for us here in Maine. I feel I am just waiting during this time….waiting for daylight to noticeably increase, waiting for the temperatures to warm, waiting for the snow to melt, waiting for the ground to thaw, and waiting for signs of spring.
In the mean time, here are some things growing under lights in the basement:
|Lettuce just about ready for the first harvest.|
|One year old onion seeds growing quite well.|
|Spinach forming their secondary leaves.|
|Mostly Arugula germinated from some old Mesclun seeds tested.|
|A few more sage seedlings.|
These are keeping me focused on spring which is certain to follow eventually.
