The following article was published by the Pacific North West Extention, a joint effort of
University of Idaho – Oregon State University – Washington State University

SHORT SEASON GARDENING

There are several methods listed of warming your soil early, protecting plants from cool weather and selecting cool season adapted vegetables as well as early maturing cultivars.

I warm my beds by covering with thick clear vinyl plastic right down to the ground. Its amazing how much quicker the soil warms with plastic. I want to start my cool-season crops early enough to grow before the heat of summer or an unusually warm spring can destroy them.

Even with snow on the ground, the plastic is doing its job warming the soil.
