Mike I'm not sure of your frost dates are in Idaho ours is 10/10 , last night I picked red beets that have been in since spring mind you they aren't as tender but still better then canned . Also picked swiss chard , broccoi ( small side shoots from old plants ) and for the first time little heads of cabbage that formed on the plants that had the large head removed months ago . There are carrots growing and peppers that can be picked , Al

Al, thank you for reminding us not to give up just yet. It reminded me to plant some lettuce.

Mike, throw some lettuce seeds in and have one last salad in the late fall.

Havn't been able to get into the garden because of working duing the hurricane but I pick all the peppers off the plants last night because it was supposed to go to 26*F last night .Took a peek at the lettuce , spinach and chard seedlings growing under the plastic in the rasied bed , they were looking good , we'll see how they fair after last night , I'll post some pictures when I can , Al

It's finely getting back to normal after working so much during the storm . But here are some pictures I took this week , picked swiss chard , beets , and little cabbages for supper .There are still carrots in but will need to either pick them or mulch them before the ground freeze too hard. The lettuce that wasn't covered hung in but not by much lol .The garlic is popping up . The cover plants are still growing but slow . we had snow this week and never warmed up enough to melt all of it off the plastic . Was hoping today it would be warm but still below 32*f , Al
