I knew that TaT Soi and Mache/corn salad (or, as I prefer to call it, Rapunzel) were hardy little critters but today I was amazed when I finally got to peek into a cold frame that had been trashed in one of the early winter storms! The 'lid' had caved in because I hadn't constructed it well enough and the plastic sheeting had been pressed down against the plants underneath. A couple of days ago I was able to remove the two inch slabs of ice that had formed in the sag but didn't even bother to look under the plastic assuming that nothing would have survived. Imagine my surprise when I discovered a healthy growth of greens - Tat Soi, Rapunzel, almost ready to pick and mizuna and kale not far behind. Had to have a nibble, of course and my they tasted so good!

These green survived being buried undr a sheet of ice for a couple of months - truly hardy!
