I waited until noon today when the temperature was up to 28 to check on the fall garden and harvest some lettuce.

A few big snowflakes were falling as I picked almost a pound. What a treat! And it looks to be a good 4-5 time that left still.

This is the first year trying the Johnny’s Select greenhouse plastic for low hoops, so no idea how much will survive the next several days of teens and 20s. Time will tell.

I did accidentally discover that the side that I accidentally buried with wood chips last week did better than the side where the edge odd the plastic just laid on the ground. So now I buried both edges.
