It's been a little warmer since black Friday with temps getting up to the 30s during the day and teens at night.
Hoop House update...
My little hoop house stays between the 20s & 30s during the night even with the chilly teen temps thanks to my fortifications (Christmas lights and a sleeping bag cover over the plastic).
Unfortunately, I did lose some plants to the bitter cold though. My huge arugula "bush" that was growing so nicely on the west side really took a beating... not sure if it'll make a come back, we'll see. And 2 of my swiss chard plants on the north side look really sad.
But still growing are spinach, swiss chard, and arugula... as well as my micro greens including mesclun, radish, and sunflower.
Today I harvested some of the greens that will be used in my morning green smoothie... yup... still drinking down that delicious fruity green stuff!

Hope that you had a yummy Thanksgiving!
For the first time in our new home, we hosted 16 family & friends. And it looks like Christmas dinner will be here too this year!
