pulled up the beet, had to wipe away the snow:)
The greens are all limp and weird, tried a nibble - they had the texture of like seaweed.....thick, chewy,
Still good to eat?

oh yeah - my kale is delish for sure, just not enough of it! Parsley, turnip and cilantro still kicking it in the snow....
Not sure about these beet greens....

welp nobaody got back to me on this, so I figured the greens weren't getting any younger....
Smoothied it up with some orange and banana. Not the tastiest, but the oranges weren't very good, so If I don't post again - I've been killed by deadly wilted seaweed beet greens....

I imagine the beet greens were a bit like thawed frozen kale right? I don't think they would have spoiled out in the cold; just broke down the cellular structure as though in your freezer.
I have to pull my cover now that the snow has stopped and see how the mustard greens and beets look. Probably a loss. But that's ok, I am now harvesting the indoor kale and mizuna.
