The day before the first hard frost

Baby Arugula

Giant Red Mustard surrounded by lettuce

Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce

Oak Leaf Lettuce

Baby Broccoli
These are some of the greens  that are thriving out in our fields as of Friday afternoon.  The forecast for tonight calls for a low of around 22 F.  That's cold enough to damage many of the greens.  What really determines whether the plants die or not is how deep the frost goes.  If there is enough frost in the ground to damage the roots the plants usually die.  To bad the hard frost couldn't wait until Saturday night.  If that were the case our CSA members could come out and harvest all the greens they could carry home.
