lettuce and endives

escarole endive escarole 5 oak leaf lettuce I was surprised to find my little lettuce patch still growing. I don't go out to the garden very often these days. I had stopped covering the patch in early December because everything was freezing pretty solid, even with the covering. I didn't realize that these plants would survive. Not really very many plants - probably not enough for a single salad serving - but I think they are photogenic and a good crop to consider expanding for next year. Still growing are (clockwise from top left): purple-spotted escarole, curly endive, oak leaf lettuce and plain escarole.

Lactuca sativa

green parsley

My parsley is another plant that is doing just fine at the end of December. I have given up on covering it.

first snow on the garden

first snow on the vegetable garden
Just a dusting in our area. My dad says it looks more like powdered sugar than snow. It lasted about an hour.
