Update on greenhouse plant experiments

First, the peppers have died.  They did fine when the lows were in the 20's, but when it got down to the single digits they froze.  The small ficus in the yellow pot died too.

The parsnips, as you can see, are doing great! The parsnip roots are about 1/2" diameter and new stems are popping up every couple of weeks.  Everything else (beets, onions, carrots, lettuce, sorrel) are overwintering OK but are not growing any larger.
 

The garlic cloves I planted a few weeks ago are starting to sprout and grow quickly!  I am excited to see what they do this spring.
