While the temperatures were above freezing yesterday I went out to harvest more greens from the cold frame and hoop frame. We enjoyed having a good mix of greens washed and ready for salads at dinner in the fridge the week before, and just finished off the ones I’d picked. I have to plan ahead and pick on the days when it’s above freezing. There may not be much left for the rest of the winter, but the plants will rebound when the light and temperatures increase in the spring.
The winter lettuce ended up on top, but the colander also included mache, claytonia, minutina, mizuna, tatsoi, kale, spinach & purple mustard greens along side a couple of eggs. It makes for a very flavorful salad mix on the darkest nights of the year.
