A snowed in garden still gives vegetables


When your garden looks like this, covered with snow, someone might think that it is in bed and undisturbed until spring melt. But if you've planned your garden well, you can go out with the shovel and dig up some ruby red treasures and some golden nuggets. I did just that today. The snow was about 6 inches deep. It had melted from the day before and I was able to fine the beet and carrot rows without any trouble. Surprisingly, the earth was not frozen and not soggy, but broke up well as if ready to plant.

Here are the carrots ready to clean and peal. The looks so bright and chock full of nutrients.


And here are two of the beets, semi cooked. I'm going to cover them with olive oil and roast them in the oven. They will be sweet and delicious. Detroit Red is an easy variety to grow and mid winter, a great garden treat.
