Winter eats

Happy New Year! Well, here we are in January and we just enjoyed a salad of fresh greens, including spinach and lettuce from the hoop house and arugula from outside. It has snowed and melted and snowed again, but temps remain unseasonably mild, which seems to help the arugula. The hoop house was nice and warm inside yesterday with the sun shining brightly. We still have carrots and red onions in storage and a few more beets. I am so excited to be able to continue to eat the fruits of our summer labor. The spinach is so succulent and tasty and the carrots are still sweet. We plan to make spinach pasta and will try to post some pics when we do.
