Hardiness of greens

Arugula, parsley, and kale
I was surprised to see the kale seedlings looking quite good, after frosty nights in their beds in the mountains. 

Supposedly, young leaves are more frost tolerant than older ones, and kale is normally tough to 20°F, in any case.   The leeks, lettuce, swiss chard, and parsley are doing well, too.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
