First salad of the year! Last night, we chowed on some spinach and arugula varieties as well as 14 different types of lettuce. Yum!

I've got about 250 plants out, which will keep feeding us and lots of friends and family through about January. I will cover the greens with clear plastic next fall/winter so they last a little longer.

Some varieties are just going to bolt, but many won't if you cover them with a sheer white fabric (like a row cover) that shades out a little son but still lets air circulate and rain get in.

Same with cold. I cover it with a clear plastic in winter. Some varieties will taste bad after it gets cold - others will make it all the way through until the spring and still be delicious.

We have some mustard greens just coming up. They were planted the last days of March. Not too bad for Aurora,CO. Now if we can only keep some feral cats fm using my raised beds for a litter box!
Thanks Ray
