As the arctic blast moved through, many of the remaining leaves blew off, although some yellows (mostly hickories) are falling slowly now. They’re beautiful.
Remarkable to have such cold weather last night, and in the 20’s again tonight. Now, in mid-November. The kale and collards look OK; I didn’t expect that. I’ll see how they look in the coming weeks.
What I covered with heavy Remay — well, I’m vaguely hopeful there, too, as when I rearranged the hoops and cloth covering the spinach seedlings this afternoon, they still looked largely OK.
I’ve posted this photo before, but it’s worth including again. Talking about four-season vegetable gardening yesterday reminds me of the vagaries of the weather.

Perhaps I’ll have some spinach to harvest in mid to late winter, when we return in early March from Quebec.
