Winter Vegetables 2

As warm weather prevailed well into December, we’d been planting “winter vegetables” (bak choi, brussel sprouts, broccoli, lettuces, kohlrabi, mustard greens, cilantro, etc.) that thrived and grew well.

During the week of Christmas through New Years however, we were hit by frosts in the high 20’s that completely killed our remaining summer vegetables (tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, eggplant, etc.). The garden looked so sad on some of the mornings but seemed to have faired well despite the cold.

But now that non-freezing nights are back (for how long?), the garden is slowly looking happier than during the past week.
