Winter Harvest

      It is going to be a little colder tonight, somewhere just under twenty degrees.   One the cold frames at the park does not seal tightly unless I put a log on top of it, so on this damp, dreary, and snow spitting afternoon, I had to go over to the park for emergency duty.  Not wanting to waste the time, and starting to crave a salad, I picked from greens during the snow shower.  Here is a nice harvest for February 11th:

From park garden cold frames, 2/11/2012
      The haul includes arugula, black seeded simpson lettuce, rouge d'hivre lettuce, tatsoi, red sails lettuce, tango lettuce, oak leaf lettuce, celery tops, and miner's lettuce.  Simply scrumptious beginnings to tonight's fresh salad.
