Winter garden

This is the last state I ever expected to see my front-yard garden in:

Yes, this is Texas, and that white stuff? It's called snow, something we don't see often here, and the absence of the stuff is the reason we garden year-round. The garden boxes did a nice job of catching it, as if freshly mulched.

I wanted to put a sweater on the kale, maybe with a little hat and scarf. It must be freezing!

They're huddling together for warmth, see?

How did your garden weather the snow?

My garden did great--greens, cole crops, strawberries, onions and cool-season herbs weren't fazed in the slightest.
