Our goal is to use Eliot Coleman's ideas from his book Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Longin our greenhouse. Last year we planted spinach, kale and chicory in half the greenhouse, but did not get the floating row cover on early enough, so we didn't get any greens through the winter. Most of the plants, however came back this spring and we are letting them go to seed so we can save seeds for next year.
In June we planted carrots, beets and lettuce in the other half of the greenhouse to harvest some this year and leave some for winter (we hope). Early fall we will harvest the lettuce and plant a spinach, or another type of cold loving green.
