By the time Friday evening arrived, I decided to pull up what I had left in the garden. The brussels sprouts, etc. had already gone through a few nights of -5C, but I thought -8C might be too much (but not really sure how cold they can take it?).
So out I went with the very dim flashlight in the dark to gather what I could.
I pulled the two largest of the brussels sprouts, root ball and all. I bagged up the bottom to keep the dirt from getting everywhere and they are now hanging in the basement in the hopes of getting a bit more size out of them.
Plus a smaller plant which yielded all of 1/2 a cup of these teeny marbles.
And I grabbed the 2 largest savoy cabbage heads ... as you can see, they didn't get too big.
I nibbled on one of the broccoli side shoots left but it was a bit mealy so chucked the rest in the compost. And the cauliflower never really did anything anyway so I've just left it there for now.
Other than herbs, I have nothing left. I had some beets and carrots planted but they aren't big enough to harvest. The 5 cm of snow on Sunday hasn't helped ...
But I'll definitely be checking in regularly at Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday collection to see what other gardeners (in warmer climes than mine) have going on.
