Yesterday in the warm sunshine, I happily planted spinach seeds, but this morning a cold blast of winter-like weather has returned. Anticipating the backslide, we constructed a mini greenhouse over one of our raised beds using sections of water pipe leftover from other projects. To attach the plastic, we wrapped and stapled clothesline rope around the perimeter of the 2x4 framework. It was a quick fix using materials we already had (with the exception of the plastic which I purchased at our local Fleet Farm Store). Mission accomplished... a warmer environment for seeds to germinate and send shoots up through the soil to get a jump on our way-too-brief central Minnesota growing season.
