plant update

There was frost on the grass the other day. Not a killing frost, but enough to get our attention and get final rows covered up with floating row covers. It is amazing but true: if protected from wind some plants (greens mostly) can be grown all winter long without heat. We have lots of things started, and add more weekly. Friday was the day garlic went into the ground, to be harvested all of next year.

Here are some ready to pull, growing for winter, still sprouting flowers for peas and tomatoes harvested in the next month..a little protection goes a long way.
