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.

a cold night - did lettuce survive?

The temperature dipped to 19F in some areas of my yard last night. I have a bunch of salad greens out there marked for the Thanksgiving Day salad bowl. They're under a double layer of row cover. I'm worried about what I'll find when I check them. I may be buying lettuce ...

when you find out, "lettuce" know!

sorry for the pun - I actually am curious. I winter-garden too, here it got down to around 22, and I just checked & all is well. I think it makes a difference that the ground is still warmish, compared to later in the season.

I just finished my lettuce and scallions. They were under a plastic tunnel. This has been the longest season for me so far.
