Cold Temps

These are four oranges I picked (from my orange tree) before the cold temperatures arrived.  They were a little under-ripe but I knew they wouldn't survive, so I picked them a bit early.  Very happy with them.

Last night the temperatures reached 19-20 degrees... and held for eight hours.  Yikes!  This is what my turnips, kale, and collards looked like this morning.  They are wilted but appear to have survived.  By noon today they should be standing back up (cool weather greens are very cold tolerant).  An added benefit is that cold weather sweetens the green.
