Unintentional Compost source.

Post  happyfrog on 12/7/2010, 11:58 am

These pics are not for the faint of heart. They're pics of swiss chard that have not fared well in Ohio weather where the current temps are 20ish *F.







I really didn't expect them to do so badly. I had hopes that they'd be fine w/o protector covering - my kale did just fine all winter. Ah well. live and learn.

Oh for details - this swiss chard was started from seed in Feb/March 2010 and I had been harvesting from it all summer and fall.

as soon as i am able to get my back gate opened again (it's frozen shut) i will pull that plant (it's actually 2 squares of 4 plants each) and put it in the compost pile. it's very sad to see there all sickly looking.
