This morning it was 30 degrees F.


Somewhere in northern Wyoming I saw it was 3 degrees.

Well….. 30 isn’t so bad.  After the sun climbed up into the sky the temperature rose.  Warm enough to go for a bike ride, hang some laundry out to dry, and plant the remaining onion bulbs needing to go in the ground.

I don’t think the turnips I planted made it.  Looks like the damn grasshoppers ate the seedlings as soon as they came up.  The carrots and garlic are growing though….as well as a few spinach and chard.  One of these days we intend to build a greenhouse.  Maybe using old windows we’ve been stockpiling for some purpose.   I think it would make growing winter greens more productive.
