Here they are!

A view of part of my garden from above. In the foreground you can see the rows of garlic we planted. At the far end are two long rows of strawberry plants. On the left out of view are my two long rows of asparagus plants. And, of course, my five cold frames. It was in the mid 30's last night and hasn't gotten much warmer so far. We are experiencing a 10 degree below normal cold snap. In the next day or two I will go around the edges of the frames to make sure there aren't any drafts, and mulch with old hay around them for warmth. Just to the left are my three rows of pepper plants. I think I will have to pick them green at this point. They are looking a little displeased with me.

An up close view.

My winter hardy lettuce, arugula and Chinese choy (bok choy) don't seem to be bothered by the chill in the air. If this cold weather persists, I'll have to harvest them soon.
