Yes, that is ice in that picture! We experienced some real winter here at my Sanctuary Garden last night! I went to bed with a small dusting of snow on my car and woke up to ice in my water buckets! Not a big deal for this Yankee, but I was concerned for my plants. Unfortunately, I lost the asparagus again. It was so cold, that even under the covering, my new batch of asparagus spears froze. However, everything else in the garden is looking pretty good. Take a look!
