It seems that the Minnesota snow decided to follow me because tonight/tomorrow morning Memphis is expected to have snow and sleet enough to close things down.
Snow fell just before I left earlier in the week and I was amazed to see all the tatsoi mustard, collards, regular mustard, broccoli, peas, pak choy, little beet seedlings and chard babies all still doing fine despite my negligence of not covering them before I left.
So.... I'm thinking about not covering them again.
A little gamble. But I'm a gambling woman!
I like my tough little plants. Sort of slow growing in the winter but I planted a bunch so I can take a little from each.
Tatsoi mustard and so tasty! Beautiful rosettes! I planted them all too close and had to heavily thin and they are doing ok with it despite this weather!
It's weird seeing pak choy bolt in the winter, but sort of uplifting that something is working so hard to flower/seed in this weather. Hardy things.
PS update: no snow/sleet thus far, yeah! NPR and their bad weather forecasting
