This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

I'm looking forward to hearing how long you can harvest. Next year I might try a winter greens bed.

I should try the same plants side-by-side with and without the plastic and hoops some day to see just how much longer I can extend the harvest.

I had a cold frame for the past 3 years and had good success. Mostly, the success was in the spring though, rather than extending the fall. The plants would perk up and grow with the spring light.

The light is good for growing in spring before the weather warms, but its the opposite in fall: the light fails before the weather chills. I had a really nice cold frame full of March and April spinach one year.

I only have chives that early in the spring, so having spinach to harvest sounds wonderful. I'll have to try a cold frame next year.
