Thank you, Elliot Coleman
A few years ago, we read this book:
His description of a simple hoop house set us on the path to having an unheated greenhouse in the wintertime.
The photo above shows what I went out and picked today. It is 20 degrees F. this afternoon and there are fresh greens for a salad!
If you have some land, or even a small plot, I highly recommend trying to grow some cold-tolerant things in the winter, under some sort of cover, whether it is a hoop house, a cold frame or a simple cloche.
Even a small amount of organically grown fresh things from your own efforts is such a blessing when there is snow on the ground.
Thank you, Elliot Coleman!
