You are in a great zone for winter-growing Others. Spinach was my fall sown winner for this spring, but cilantro also so excellent. May need a light cover, but it actually helps prep the soil for Peppers 2023.
You're north of me - how did you manage to keep them going through January, to avoid frost damage? Was that "hoop house" really enough?Plant cilantro in early September , spinach too
Here's my 4x10 bed last Christmas day.
Spinach in the back only took up about 2x5
I have a few almost exactly the same. Got a lot of stuff growing very nicely in them - looking forward to seeing what you get going!Did it anyway. Can slide the hardware cloth underneath. I'm amazed at how close my eyeball level was. Sweaty and mosquito-bitten now.
I think I'll move that top support down a position. I don't want to see it.
To be honest I was a little suprised myself. The fabric is just thin Agribon. It mainly blocks wind which is very hard winter greens even if it doesn't kill them. It's possible that raised beds are an overall plus at keeping the soil warmer than in-ground but that would bare some testing. If a veggie variety is deemed more cold hardy I usually go with that one.You're north of me - how did you manage to keep them going through January, to avoid frost damage?

If so you're going to have to share your tricks, because I keep failing at it...
