Weather this cold doesn't usually come until January in Pocatello.  It is warmer this week, but the winds make the wind-chill nasty.

Comment by Randall Smith on Wednesday

What a cold, miserable November. I usually can harvest small brocolli heads up to Thanksgiving. Kale and chard, too. Not this year. Boo hiss. Time to raid the freezer.

Yes Randy, the controls are in the middle & he was crouched down while I was doing the video. He missed a couple of times not knowing where I was pointing.

Comment by Randall Smith on Monday

Cool, Patricia! I liked when your husband (I assume!) poked his head up. That's quite a hobby.

Spud, if your ground hasn't frozen yet, you might be able to harvest onions. I'm still getting the green tops.

Comment by Patricia on Monday

My husband's ''other'' hobby when the garden/yard work is done for the season.

HO Model trains with the new ''moo'' car.......

Comment by Idaho Spud on Sunday

Sounds like a well-stocked root cellar Randy.  I'm jealous.

I wonder if I could find some edible onions in the ground this time of year.

Comment by Randall Smith on Sunday

The ground thawed out enough for me to dig up all my carrots. Talk about a mixed bag in size. Some huge, others teeny. The worms didn't get to them. I'll stick them in a bucket of sand and add them to my root cellar. Just another addition to my stash of potatoes, squash, onions, and fruit (apples and pears). If the "apocalypse" arrives, I'm all set!

Arid Lands Permaculture, start at 5:00 to learn about fungus and permaculture.

Joan, yes! same grinder in our house and used for a variety of things.

Randall, :) we were suppose to have a freeze, but my patio thermometer read 40F this a.m.  5" of snow! Nice snowmen?

Daniel, yes, I too like the re-cycling ideas. I went to local grocery and got cardboard to create walkways, but still need more. Your idea will work too. 

Comment by Randall Smith on November 17, 2014 at 8:02am

Five inches of snow has covered the garden. That's not all bad. The insolation might protect the kale, etc. from the 8 degree temps we're expected to have tonight. But I'm afeared the garden is shot for the year. Like Daniel, I'll begin planning for next spring. I like his (your) idea of reusing my dog food bags for paths and weed control.

Like B.sprouts, persimmons taste better after a freeze. And yes, the rule of thumb is, pick persimmons off the ground, not the tree. I shake the limbs. 'Possums and 'coons love them and keep the ground cleaned up.
