The weather over the past week+ has been awful: cloudy, cold, and rainy/snowy/icy. But inside, the plants are only minimally affected. The lack of light and warmth has slowed their growth, but they're still plugging along:

The lettuce has thinned out a bit due to our munching. The row of large light green lettuce towards the left is Iceberg.
