Baby, its cold outside!

It was 22 degrees when I woke up this morning.  We've had quite a few good frosts already, but this is the first real freeze.  The really crazy thing is, we're supposed to be in a warm up in the next 4 days or so.  There will be highs in the mid 60s at least.  The parsnips couldn't care less.

The chard is probably going to care a little bit more.  We'll see how it all goes.  I've never had chard this late, so I have no idea what this will do to it.  If all else fails, it will go to the chickens.

You may be surpised by the chard. It's a semi hardy crop and can tolerate a single cold snap fairly well. A series of them will do it in though.

It looks great now that it has defrosted. I think it will be fine uncovered for the next several weeks at least.
