I went out to my rental garden for the first time in three weeks. The broccoli in both my backyard and rental garden has been destroyed. Low single digits F with a 60 hour freeze were beyond its tolerance. So that's it till Memorial day for broccoli unless we have another spring like 2012 when I got it May 4.

Brussels sprouts were lightly burned but appear okay and I expect a few decent meals of them between President's day and early April. After that they will bolt to seed. Next winter I will start them earlier (mid June) and have a season from Thanksgiving to April.


As expected Lettuce was destroyed.
