Cold day again

We planted outside: white and purple and red scallions, Italian torpedo onions, small onions, large onions, red onions, yellow onions.  Picked a large salad with raddichio for it, too.  Planted 140 more feet each of spinach and cutting lettuces.  No rain here, so we watered.  Dug a row of overwintered carrots.
Bill and a couple of neighbor boys did foundation work on the new tractor shed. Digging outside it to add foam insulation, they found frozen clay and chunks of ice about 2 feet down. That explains the condensation on the inside.   
Lunch was stewed chicken with cauliflower and green beans, salad, homemade bread, hard-boiled eggs.  Supper was roasted parsnips, roasted tomatoes, eggplant and squashes from the freezer, couscous, wild-caught salmon.  YUM!  And all but salmon and couscous were homegrown!

Sugar maples bud
Turning old gray to new pink
In evening's low light
