Covering the 2 backyard beds with plastic film in the Spring works well with the kale. I think that this is the 3rd or 4th time we have had it in the kitchen, from just a few plants.

All the plants were harvested vigorously thru 2021. There are another few plants outside the hoop house. Are they growing? Nope.

tiny kale plants are started for the 2022 garden
I love fresh kale! So wonderful in homemade soups!

I just harvested some calamondins and purple broccoli (planted in summer and harvested in Spring).

The new flowers appear, so it's time to harvest all of them.

Chard.

I decided to leave a plant in one of the backyard beds that is covered in March with plastic film. It worked! Not only did the plant survive some sub-zero & some snow, altho a warm winter, but the covering prompted it to begin growing.

Only one plant and it may well begin now to bolt, don't know.

I amThrilled that the 5 (leftover from planting 18 at DD's house) asparagus ALL survived the winter!!
Eldest DD, the "chef" is adamant that we don't harvest A N Y until next year, so, sadly I stared at a big fat one for a good 5 minutes yesterday, sighed, then found something else to do outside, instead.
