I meant to have a huge harvest this week I really did. Yesterday I was supposed to pick a lot. The weather forecast was for mid 20s last night for the first time. The weather is supposed to continue and get even colder. We are supposed to get down to the teens later this week. So it is the first time that it would freeze in my little low tunnel. I wanted to get a big harvest before anything might be damaged. Now they are all hardy plants, but the white stemmed bok choy in particular is very finicky. I wasn't sure if it would hold up well.
But I didn't. My daughter skyped me. She is autistic and has issues understanding people. She uses me as a sounding board to try to understand. We ended up talking for over four hours. Then my husband wanted me. Its nice to be needed, but the garden never got picked. I had some time after dinner and really thought about it, but it was cold and dark. This morning the temperature was 31F. Yup below freezing but not horribly bad. Once it warms up today I'll go out and harvest. Some I'll leave in for a long time as I want to see how hardy they are, but most I want to get picked so I have them as a harvest.
I still did get a small harvest this week. But I was mostly using up the rest of what I'd picked previously. I made a big salad for the week which I meant to take a photo of but forgot as usual.
