10.26.11 Change in the weather

With a prediction of snow, it was time to take what we could from the garden (clockwise from top) — Rainbow Mix chard, King Richard and Giant Musselburgh leeks, Detroit Dark Red beets, and salad greens (Astro arugula mixed with Gourmet and Q’s Special Medley lettuces). Though the beets are cold hardy, we wanted to make sure we saved the greens, which will be combined with the chard for this (via 101 Cookbooks).

Everything else went under cover: salad greens, radishes, kales, chard, leeks, celeriac, fennel, parsnips, and carrots, along with a few other things we’re experimenting with.

    You were so smart. I did not bring in any leeks, celeriac, parsnip or beets nor are they protected. Not sure what I will find after all the snow disappear.

      Welcome, Emily! We’ve been experimenting with season extension for a couple of years, and they are is a hybrid of low tunnels with cold frames that we adapted from a permaculture workshop.
