Snow Day

Yesterday, we woke up to around five inches of snow on the ground and just across town, they received over a foot. This is highly unusual weather for our area. My Pirate was sent home from work due to the snow for the first time in his 20+ career. We were able to enjoy a cozy snow day together.

Tonight the temperatures are predicted to dip down in the low teens or single digits. I'm concerned about all of my new plants that I added this year. How will they do? In the vegetable garden, all the kales and cabbages look beat up and the raddichio has turned into balls of frozen slime. 

Gardening is an adventure. Losing plants is painful but part of the process. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for spring.

How is your garden doing this winter? Any plant losses or broken branches?
