Sunny Cloche

So far so good. The cloche is still avoiding the barn shadow. In another month or so, it will catch some afternoon shade, I'm sure. For now, it catches the sun. The nice day today allowed me to remove the monster size, now frost blackened, tomato vines and do some other clean up.
Inside the cloche. The lettuce, chard and parsley seem to be settling in. The chives look pretty sad, but that's because of not so much care in transplanting them. I figure they'll pull through. I had simply dug up a big clump, chopped back the leaves, divided and plunked them in the ground. Scroll down to see the earlier postings this month about building this cloche, if you like.

That's a terrific little cloche. Its already transforming what you can grow at this time of year.

The chives will be fine. Ive always found them to be incredibly hardy.
