Monday Harvest Report February 16, 2015

More warm weather here in Utah!  We had high’s in the 50’s & 60’s all week.  Even the nights have been warm.  In the past week I was able to leave the covers off the cold frame 4 nights!!


That sure is making the spring cold frames grow great!!  Look at this spinach!

Swiss Chard

And the Swiss Chard is ready to harvest as well!!

Lettuce Seedlings

No harvest this week because what we harvested at the end of last week lasted the week.  But here’s a quick update on our seed starting.  These lettuce starts are a little over 2 weeks old now, so it’s time to start fertilizing them once a week.  They will be ready to go out in the cold frame in about 3 weeks!

Cole Seedlings

And I decided to start my Cole crops a little early this year.  Last year I started them on about February 25th.  The broccoli & cabbages really felt like that they could have gone in sooner, so this year I started them on February 7th.


So these starts have been in for a little more than a week now.

Seedlings 2

Everything has germinated except the  celery which is always slower to come up.   Pretty good progress for just a week!

Check back with us later in the week and we should have some great posts for you.  Valerie has another post ready in her healthy living series and I’m just finishing up a post on our drip PVC watering system!

We are sharing today’s post on the Monday Harvest report!

    I think some time the snow will melt and I’ll see my spinach plants again. It is nice to see yours. My mom told me it was 60F in Colorado, so you must be warm too. I keep wishing for some of that to come east to us.

      My biggest worry for us is the lack of moisture this winter. It’s going to be a dry summer!!

    It is nice when the weather makes gardening easy. It’s been so warm here that it is tempting to try to get a headstart on summer sowing, but I know better than to give in.

    It will be a while before the snow melts and I can open my garden gate, like Daphne, I am wishing for some warm weather to come east.

    The greens in the cold frame look great! Your seed starting is a bit ahead of mine. And I would gladly share some snow with you – bet Daphne and Norma would too!

    Can’t help but be a little envious of your greens and warm weather but we should have no problem with drought here hopefully. Nancy

    We are in a deep freeze right now. I won’t be sowing greens for another couple of months – can’t come soon enough, that’s for sure.

    Our weather, here in Oregon, has been warm to just like yours. Our seedlings are doing good in the cold frame and I’m sprouting sugar snap peas on the refrigerator to plant this week.

    Looks like your seedlings are off to a great start too. Thanks for linking up to the Tuesday Garden Party!

    Your greens look good, I didn’t planted any spinach to overwinter, but the hybrid broccolini surpassed my expectation, I’ll grow it again coming fall.
