Spring veggies

I was out in the garden today, starting to clean up and I remembered I hadn't posted some pictures from a few weeks back. Around the beginning of April, we opened up one of our hoop houses to harvest some veggies that had over-wintered in the garden. You can tell these pictures were from a few weeks back because of the snow, but ... oh yeah, it snowed yesterday!

We had carrots and green onions under the plastic and lettuce inside a cold frame (double layer).

The carrots pulled up great. Most were a pretty good size, although next year we will try and plant a little earlier so they grow a bit bigger before winter. The green onions also did well.

The lettuce, on the other hand, was a dud. This was likely, again, due to planting too late and not giving it a chance to establish before winter. We also stuffed the cold frame with straw to help keep it warm and we are wondering if we might kept the seeds from growing.
