back yard thaw

a week ago it was almost -9F in my back yard...this morning it is about 60 degrees warmer and the snow and ice are melting ( it was raining at 4 a.m. )...there is quite a bit of brown foliage out there is warm but it is not spring...still...the kohlrabi in the third photo is more green than are the brussels sprouts in the next photo...and the egyptian walking onions poking up through the straw seems a layer of insulating snow has protected more than the winter wheat that's planted ( and still snow covered ) out there...there will be more snow..i am skeptical about these plants ( except the onions ) overwintering...but stranger things have happened...stay tuned.
