Really? Was that from your greenhouse or outside? I'd like to learn more.

:-) Thanks!

These are in my greenhouse. No heat. One layer of plastic. Lots of cracks, etc... The plants are protected from the snow and situated for the best sunlight, but other than that I wouldn't consider it the best growing conditions. However, you should taste my salads :-) The flavor is incredible. The leaves are sweet and tender and flavorful!! So, the thing we have learned is. Don't water at all. Don't pick the salads when they are frosty or they just turn to slime. There are days when I can't cut salads because it's too cold. On days that it warms up enough then we cut and the leaves are fine.

There is a book about winter gardening. I list it somewhere on my garden blog.
