Today, I couldn’t get into the city to work. There’s about nine inches of snow on the ground…

…and on the kale, the broccoli, the turnips, the beet root, the roof of the greenhouse…

I don’t think anything is going to survive. We didn’t expect a blizzard and don’t have greenhouse heaters or clotches…so we’ll see what happens, but I think the plants are dying. We will have to take this as a lesson. We’ll need to figure out some sheltered growing conditions for next winter and in the meantime, I’ll keep thinking that maybe the snow will melt away soon and everything will rebound.

I’m ¬†glad we got in a few crops of purple brussels before the major snow storm.

Hands down, the best way to cook brussels sprouts is roasted in the oven, after a coating of olive oil, freshly minced garlic, and salt!
