Ugly Winter Garden

I thought it was about time for a little winter garden update and it's ugly, that's all you need to know. It got super cold so much earlier than I expected and most things died.  I covered a few things like my artichoke plant which I am hoping will produce more next summer, and my cilantro because I'm not ready to give it up just yet.  Everything else was on it's own.

 Luckily my carrots, beats, mustard spinach, swiss chard, and daikon radishes all still look good.  Guess what we'll be eating this week....

 My potatoes on the other hand died....way too early.  So I figured that was the end of that and decided to dig up what I could.  By that I mean I was hoping to find as many potatoes as I could before my back gave up and I froze.  Why is it soo cold out? and why is it so hard to dig up potatoes?  Well here's what I found and there's a huge possibility there's more out there, but I gave up.  

Our mandarin oranges are also starting to ripen which I'm pretty excited about.  Now if only the lemons would hurry up...
