Planting Fall/Winter Greens & Brendan's Tomato Soup

Following Patrick's example on the One Yard Revolution Channel I'm starting some Claytonia, also called Miner's Lettuce and Mache, also called Corn Salad, in the hoop house. I built a kind of mini greenhouse/cold frame to grow it under in the hopes of getting a crop off of it before the real winter sets in here and to see if it will survive winter and come back to life in spring time for an early crop of greens. In the last half of the video I make Brendan's Excellent Tomato Soup, very spicy and good. The ingredients for the soup are: 1.5lbs/700g fresh tomatoes 1 medium potato diced 1 medium onion diced 1 clove garlic 1 fresh chilli deseeded or to taste 1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 tablespoon fresh 1/2 pint stock 2 tablespoon olive oil
