Hopefully we can make those cold frames this weekend and see if I can get any greens to grow. It is usually trial and error with me. I have tried following the advice of books and web sites but I seem to work better just winging it and seeing what happens. So that is how we work it here.
Seems to be working fine for us.
Oh and here is a picture of the beautiful purple basil we grew this year. Great flavor and adds great color to the garden and anything I cook.
