Despite my best efforts I ended up with a north facing back yard. I laid out my garden beds shortly after moving in and for weeks watched as the sun rose and set lower and lower into the southern sky each day and finally decided “what the heck”. I planted my collards and spinach in the end most boxes which seemed to be getting the most sun hours each day. hoping they would do well but not really expecting them to. They have impressed me with their germination rate and growth.
The first possible light freeze for this area is forecast for this week and I hope they have established themselves enough to withstand the cold. I am expanding my indoor garden this weekend either way!
