Monday afternoon. Mid forties. Tent city has been deconstructed.
Only main casualties are the peas and one rubbery broccoli plant.
Supposed to be mid 30s tonight, but i'm trusting the plant babies
to deal with that temp. 18 degrees has been left behind and scoffed at!
Some scalding on leaves is a common symptom. Hopefully these
immature broccolis and kales will bounce back with warmer weather
and forecasted rains. I might even be nice to them and
add some compost or fertilizer.
The lettuces are surprisingly perky and ready to be thinned
and consumed for a salad dinner tomorrow. Kales are getting bigger.
I can't believe the fava beans made it.
Their friends in the backyard are totally smoosh.
A little limp, but this one had been harvested once anyway.
Yum! This radish was cold and delicious, which isn't always the case.
I wonder if the cold temps reduced its bitterness some.
Locals: How did your garden fare these cold temps? Do you think we're in the clear or will we be hit with some more winter? ( i hope not, i'm tired of slinging tarps, despite my lust for a real winter again - i'd prefer to be better prepared next time)
