The Great Carrot Harvest of 2012




Chris calls me in the middle of work today to tell me he’s picked a bunch of carrots. I’m expecting, you know, a smallish bundle that you might get at the store…not a counter full! He sent me the link to the photos he’d uploaded to Facebook and I exclaimed “Holy Crap” and luckily everyone else was still eating lunch and couldn’t hear me. And so these are some of the carrots we planted back at the very beginning of October. We still have some in the plot that weren’t ready. The varieties are: jaune du doubs (yellow) , little fingers (smaller ones), and red cored chantenay (fat ones).

He’s already got carrots blanched and frozen as well as a pot of chopped carrots to go into a carrot cake.

I love our garden!
