Snapshot: Winter Greens See the Light

Rich checks out Asian greens that survived the winter under the plastic and floating row cover.

Two weeks ago, the kale was under a blanket of snow. Now it's time to watch it grow!

Last week, City Farm Steward Rich Pederson, assisted by Providence College work-study student Peter Kyller, pulled back the floating row cover and plastic that had been sheltering fall-seeded greens at City Farm. Look at what was waiting for them.

Using this system is a great way to extend your fall harvest and get a jump-start on the spring.
