The date is Jan 22, 2015. Even after one of our coldest cold snaps in recent years, there are still lots of plants looking pretty good! It's always exciting to see green during this otherwise colorless time of year.
The list of plants below is a good place to start if you're looking for signs of life during the coldest of months. Take note that nothing shown here has been protected in any way, besides a little mulch. In other words, no cold frames, row cover or greenhouses are protecting these plants. They are subject to all the elements just like the plants of the wild. These pictures were taken On Jan 22, 2015 by us. Disclaimer: not everything shown is edible!
