Snow And Cold Weather But The Lettuce Still Grows

It snowed last night and the sun has been barely out all week. But the lettuce continues to grow in the plastic covered raised beds. I use 4 mil clear plastic. I use old political sign metal bent into shape t form the hoops. Clothes pins attach the plastic to the hoops and rocks hold the sides down to seal the edges. 

A little sneak peak to check on the lettuce. The snow acts as an insulator. 
This picture was taken a week ago when the sun was out for a couple of hours.
More shots of the lettuce. These were taken  two days ago.
I'll start harvesting and eating this crop next week.
Here are some seedlings ready to go.
