Parsley fest 2014

Last week our South Carolina chickens experienced a frigid cold front. The lowest temp was around 8 degrees and considering today's balmy 60, that was a shock!

The girls survived just fine thanks to a light Ashley added in their coop for warmth and my going out repeatedly to thaw their waterer.  What really amazes me is they trucked right along with egg production.  

Our parsley, however, did not fare as well. So this afternoon I cut back the frostbitten sections. The girls loved this green snack (and they also enjoyed cilantro). 

We will see how or if the parsley comes back.  I hope it does because it's one of my favorite garnishes.
