It's been much colder than last winter. There is more damage in the garden that I had last year. My Christmas cactus was killed a few nights ago, on a covered porch. It was fine last winter. The lettuces are not going to winter over, this morning they were too far gone. The chard wasn't looking too well either, but it wasn't looking good anyway. For some reason it isn't growing tall. It is forming ground level rosettes. Nothing much I can harvest.

So, forgive me the lapse in updating the garden! I am doing some indoor preparations, buying some new things, etc. I will be telling you all about those soon! For now I'll leave you with a picture of silly ol' Boo, who doesn't mind the weather, he loves it all!
