You can sow early "cool-season" crops such as lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and onions right after preparing the soil in your barrels. Floating row cover made from spun-bonded polyester will help extend the growing season this spring, protect the lettuce from insects and frost.
