A few wintery photos..

It's snowing! There is about 5 inches down already and maybe another inch or two before the storm is finished.. We've made snow angels, went sledding and drank hot chocolate with s'mores before the fireplace.. Another winter activity? Picking salad greens of course! I just picked a bowl of rustic arugula for supper and also noticed a patch of unprotected tatsoi peeking out through the snow and ice.. it's crazy how hardy it is! I should really toss a row cover over top, but I want to see how much it will take before it succumbs to the cold!

This cold frame photo is from a few days ago - just before the storm.. it never ceases to amaze me how hardy certain veggies are.. I am really excited about the 'Winter Density' lettuce (far left in the frame).. it's still looking fantastic - the hardiest lettuce that we've ever grown. It's also very tasty! I think next year, it will get a bigger piece of the cold frame all to itself!

Happy snowy gardening!

  1. Oh I was just out in the shed planting the tatsoi seeds you gave me, as well as the other greens. Thanks so much Niki for all your guidance. I am so very impressed with your raised bed full of greens and amazed with the tatsoi photo with the snow all around it. It is crazy how hardy it is!!

    Great photos and great inspiration! Sounds as if you had a good day as well))).
