The recent 18 degree morning has proved to be too much, even for some crops that I've been led to believe can take some frost. (Should I have covered them with hay or something?) The beets, all three of the varieties, look like they've been blasted. So, I'm going to be pulling them up as I have time. Most are way too small (but the chickens will love them), some I can salvage, and there are a couple of big ones! I was surprised!
The big beet and the somewhat smaller one are Golden Detroit. There's a small Bull's Blood there, too.
The carrot plants are still looking fine. They obviously can take some really cold weather. So I just rummaged through and picked a few for the fun of it. These are a variety of white carrots, and the maroon one came from a patch called Kaleidoscope. The orange ones are a variety called Sweet n' Short.
We're eating these on Monday in some kind of root melange, I think.
