fall garden update: weathering the weather

Last weekend, we had our first spell of snow.  Just a few inches over a couple days, and it melted soon after it fell.

I have toyed around with the idea of putting up a shelter over the fall garden, but I just let it be during the storm to see how it would do.

I'm glad to say that it held up quite well.  All of the veggies were chosen for the fall garden based on their resilience to cold weather.  In fact, they are thriving quite nicely with the nice weather this week.  Here are a couple of photos from today.  In this next one, you can see the new lettuce plants, directly seeded on September 20.
Finally, here are the newest carrots and onions, also planted on September 20th, about one month ago.  They are growing slowly but steadily.
