Mayan Apocolypse Devastates Post Ranch Garden!

  This morning the entire garden was covered in a layer of thick frost.  By nine am the temperature was still in the mid thirties, and given the darkness that accompanies winter solstice, not likely to warm much.  Red mustard plants drooped against the frozen ground, the borage plant was devoid of flowers and turning black and the tiny red oxalis leaves had all been burnt by the freezing temperatures. Luckily we are on the cusp of longer days and the garden will once again be filled with tender leaves and flowers.
