Everything about this is lazy– the cold frame was not build, it was simply a window, torn out of the house during a remodel project and thrown on the ground. The spinach was planted last fall, the cold frame closed when it got too cold, sat under snow for three months and was just opened last week…..to find laziness sometimes yields great bounty! Things were alive and well, thriving in the micro climate and eager to provide us with our first humble harvest of the season, 1/4 of fresh spinach for dinner* Note to self — sometimes it is o.k. to be lazy gardener. happy harvesting!!
