There are some spots that are melting out.. they are few and far between but they are there..
The front gardens are melting first as always..
The main garden is still under a goodly amount of snow cover that for sure. but as you can see from the fields its a honest cover. and its till everywhere yet.
but in the front on a higher spot and with drainage on either side, raised bed for the win 🙂 This one has covered today to create a heat sink and next week I will give a flat topping of soil and then it will get a hoop cover and be seeded out into spring greens, its three feet wide and 12 feet long. Yes, that’s snow beside it on the low side.
The winter’s compost pile that will be worked on over the weeks and planted into a massive pumpkin planting area end of may is melted out with both the solar heating and the internal.. its edged to a water sink so that it will soak up the water from below and speed the composting process.
