We can’t complain, it has been a mild winter but when the cold does show up it still can create chaos. This past week we got some cold weather, 12 below to be exact, and even though it may be the only super cold day of the year it still left its mark.
Translucent greens, the results of ruptured frozen cells, do not make for good eating and look even worse. So we ended up throwing away hefty portions of most plants that would fail to impress all but the most hungry persons.
This is a long winded way of saying that lettuce will be small this week, hopefully we will be one and done with the super cold, but it is only January so who knows.
We do have lovely micros, not to mention ground ginger, candied ginger and both cordials readily available and with a week or two of mild weather we should be on top with greens again soon.
