Something I don't have to tell you? It is cold out. So cold. When I was looking at plants in the field this morning, I noticed many had ice crystals INSIDE of them. Literally, they were frozen on the inside. For instance, our juicy bok choi? All that juice was ice! But as the day went on, the choi thawed and will be delectable and available tomorrow, as well as Saturday. Some of the other crops may not have recovered as amazingly. I am majorly concerned about the fennel. It may be on super sale this week because I do not think it will survive the week and should all be eaten now. That is, in the event that it survived at all. Come find out if this is the week for super chicken and fennel soup, grilled fennel, roasted fennel, slivered raw fennel, or just plain fennel fennel,or, if it in fact the week of no fennel. That would be sad.
This is new for me, adjusting to how the plants adjust in the cold. New and exciting. Although I was not happy that there was ice in the plants, I must say, I was amazed. Next time, pictures. I promise.
