    I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog….and,of course, to drool over your greens. They are beautiful…how lucky you are to have a greenhouse!

    oh I am JEALOUS. I really really want a greenhouse. You should see my hilarious rigging of the plastic over the raised beds in my boulevard….what a great idea to just haul snow in there.

    Way to go, using what Mother Nature gave ya. => What are you growing there (have I mentioned my black thumb before?)? Is that parsley?

      That would be chard and parsley, which survived all winter in our unheated greenhouse, even while it was -14F outside; survivalists take note!

    I am so envious of this – fresh greens in early March! I really need a greenhouse, I love chard.

    Yum. I LOVE greens. Roasted. Raw. With a bit of mayo. Pure Heaven. Ingenious watering by the way :)

    The chard and parsley are psychedelic-ly GREEN – what a FEAST for the eyes! I would like a few more details about the snow-watering process!

    Very nice to hear about the FOOD EXCHANGE.

      Snow watering process: Col fills a bucket with snow (extra bonus if it contains chicken poop), lugs it into greenhouse. Dumps it. Repeats. I love child labor!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I love hearing from you.
