Alright, after planting the spinach seeds we're going to cover them. This is a, what they call a remake cloth. It's a spun woven cloth. Not quite sure what it's made of but it sure works great. We use it to make sure that none of the animals get in the, into the garden, rabbits especially, and the armadillos, they like to dig. They're not interested in the seed; they're interested in the grubs and the worms that are in my soil. Now we cover it and we keep it right flat on the ground because these seeds haven't germinated yet so that's not going to be a problem. Then we want to secure the remake to keep the wind from blowing. So we'll use some of these plastic hoops that I haven't used yet. They're available laying around the garden and this keeps the remake from blowing away.
