I've been checking on (and watering) our hoop houses/wagons about once a week. Their growth is slow and not very exciting, so I don't usually bother during the week, just on the weekends. The short days are also a factor and I don't ever want to let the heat out of them in the evenings. After checking on them this weekend though, it appears that, finally, things are starting to perk up a bit. Not sure if it's the unusually warm (and dry) winter we've been having, or if they've just finally gotten their feet under them, but everything's looking pretty good!

very different color on the leaves!
Slow and steady...it's becoming a theme. Our tiny spinach harvest didn't even make it into the fridge...I just ate it right after I weighed and washed it :-)
While I wish we were harvesting more right now, there is definitely hope growing in the garden...and lots of plans for the coming seasons!
Garden plans and wishes aside, the chickens are continuing to happily lay some gorgeous eggs! Sweet!
This weeks totals:
- Spinach = 1 ounce
- Eggs = 24
