Supposed to get super cold. I decided to pull anything in the garden that might be killed by the frost, and take steps to protect the few things that might survive it.
So I pulled carrots, celery, and turnips, and then created some quick hoops to protect things like lettuce, spinach, and kale.
Rabbits get the carrot tops, we get the turnip greens. In fact, they got cooked for supper with a few chopped turnip bits...yummy.
Generally speaking, the cellar isnt cold enough to store these root crops yet, so i still have to figure a temporary solution till cold temps are here to stay. I dont know about you, but we dont have room in our frig for 40 pounds of root crops and five gallons of celery... i will have to get creative.
For the things that are left, i made hoop houses and covered them with plastic. Even the chicken coop got some plastic covering on its side wall.
