Spring Cropping and Water Saving

Before the snow fell late last November, I planted my spinach. On February 8, when I made the following image, the snow had been gone for 3 days.

Around August 27, when I pulled up my onion crop, I planted my fall crop of spinach. Here’s a couple of those plants now, still left after the snow got to them before I could, with a new crop of spinach growing around them.

No irrigation required at this time of year, and it’ll all be done in time for the cultural tradition of planting the garden at the end of May. More water for the salamanders, I say.
