Temperature drops below zero at the garden for the first time this year

The temperature at the garden this morning was -2 F.  Luckily the snow cover has kept the frost from creeping into the hoop houses.  They will get to a balmy 60 F + today and by noon the spinach, frozen last night,  can be picked by noon.  The heated greenhouse is 48 F but will rise to the mid 80 s on this clear sunny day.  This is what we have to go through to eat local greens in the state of Maine.

Following is a picture of the garden from the web cam on this fine morning.
