First Frost

First frost of the winter:

Frosted broccoli
Frosted chard

Since I put in so much work, though, I’m trying a technique I heard about on the Survival Podcast: inverting a fish tank over the plants to act as a mini greenhouse.

Covered spinach
Covered chard

You can see in the last photo that I have quite a few spinach plants growing at this point. I decided to cover some and leave some uncovered. That’ll give me a decent idea of how tolerant the spinach is of low temperatures.

Plus I ran out of fish tanks.
