The kitchen garden is now sculpted into raised beds, a trellis is waiting for the arrival of the just-planted peas, and a cold frame sash sits over a bed of direct-seeded spinach. The cold frame is an experiment this year. The idea is that it will warm the soil and lead to better germination. In the farm’s workshop, Intern Virginia has also been working on a larger cold frame that will sit over the raised beds.
