SNOWY DAY SALAD GREENS AND QUICHE
Even though temperatures are below freezing at night, the outdoor lettuce (which is protected by plexiglas and a polycover) is thriving. The container is on the southside of the house, it heats up during the day, and much of the warmth is retained for night chill.
It was a perfect day to make Quiche, new snow on the ground and plenty of fresh eggs in the frig
