Wrensday: Growing Greens Undercover

We've been eating greens from our garden all winter long.
 
  How have we managed that? 
 
 By gardening undercover.
 
 
We're growing spinach, lettuce, pok choy,  swiss chard, collards, and kale.  You can see that some of our lettuce has gone to seed because it has been such a warm winter for us here in southeast Virginia.
 
We simply planted the veggies in October and covered them with floating row covers that were stretched over hoops made with pvc pipes.

The edges of the covers are weighed down with bricks around the edges.   No watering, no weeding, no fertilizing.
