Earlier in the week it was in the sixties! But yesterday we had the first snow!
Rainbow Swiss chard in the back-porch planters.
(Don't tell Mommy but the chickens were in there yesterday
having a feast.)
When it started snowing a little bit, Mommy, Blossom and I rushed out to the garden to pick the rest of the red cabbage and a few heads of bok choi and some Brussels spouts.
Kale and chard harvested on December 3,
when the temperature was 62 degrees F.
We left some vegetables under garden blankets, maybe for Christmas. We may have to dig through a snowbank to harvest them.
But we do still have some greens handy in a little greenhouse planter box we made on the back porch. It has parsley, some leeks, mache, arugula, minutina, and spinach.
