Small row cover vegetable ideas

Posted by stuffradio SW 8A BC (My Page) on

I got a 10 foot long Row cover for Christmas. If you only had 10 feet with a row cover, what would you plant the most of in that small space? In March, I'm supposed to be able to directly sow Spinach under cover, Arugula without cover, Corn Salad without cover, Kale/Collards without cover, Pac Choi without cover, and Radishes without cover.

I'm also going to be planting a lot of other things, but those are only supposed to be started indoors in March (All the Brassica plants). So my question is, what would you use that 10' of row cover with?

RE: Small row cover vegetable ideas

I use a small amount of a mid-weight row cover on my fall-planted veggies to overwinter them. I've found that my spinach can be left uncovered even down to 15F and still survive well. It overwinters as a small plant and then grows very fast for multiple harvests in late Mar and April. I've used rowcovers for broccoli in raised beds too.
