Frozen Potatoes

I neglected to cover my potato plants (two of the plants are in a container), so they wilted terribly with today's low temperatures.  I harvested the four potatoes under the soil and they are great! Three small ones, one medium large one.  I'm very pleased how well the plants did considering I didn't give it any special treatment.  Next spring when I plant more I will also pay more attention to the fertilizers each plant type needs and see what difference it makes!

In any case, it's unfortunately I didn't realize we'd have that big of a cold snap.

My lettuce and broccoli are covered with a sheet for tomorrow since it's supposed to snow a little.  We harvested some of the lettuce tonight for a salad.  Yum!!
