This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

good weather for greens

It was such a nice warm day today (in the 60's). Well, rainy, but I'm sure my garden plants thought it was nice. I opened up my plastic hoop tunnel to give it some air. Lettuce at the front edge is showing signs of damage from the several icy cold nights we've had. Other than that, all is looking good for the Thanksgiving salad bowl. winter greens IMG_0963

Just curious, if you leave the lettuce in the ground with the plastic cover on top, will it survive the winter and continue growing in the spring? Thanks.
