    January thaw outdoor harvest.

    After 2 months of cold and snow. Temps as low as 6F with snow depths to 12 inches. We had a few warm days with rain to melt away the last of the snow, and thaw the ground. Under row covers outside were a few hundred radishes, dozens of Diakons, and hundreds of salad turnips.
