Frozen Greens

I covered a small patch of mizuna seed I started some time ago to protect it from the frost, just as a little experiment to see how long it would survive. The soil in this planter is frozen but under the plastic cover the first inch is loose and free of frost. Probably because it is kept dry by the plastic cover so there is no moisture to freeze. This little green patch will not amount to anything more than a handful of micro greens at this point and I should probably harvest it soon as the temperatures are staying well below freezing.
