Aerial View: January 1, 2013

Happy New Year! We had some snow over the vacation. It mixed with rain and ended up being just enough to make things pretty. It has been quite cold this week as well: The pond is frozen enough to skate on, and the low tonight is supposed to be down in single digits. Not sure what this will mean for our kale – will the snow blanket be enough to protect it? Will the tunnels keep the carrots dig-up-able? Will the spinach and mache stay crisp in their cold frames? Last year was so ridiculously warm that we aren't sure just how much protection we can really expect from our season-extenders. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, this is the view of the garden in winter:
