So actually last weekend while herding the chickens in for the night I stopped to check my dwindling garden. The only thing left are onions and carrots. The onions won't be harvested till around august but I stopped to check on the carrots. The green growth looked wonderful so I dug my finger around the base to find out how big the carrot was... nothing! I was shocked what had I done wrong.. I wrapped the greens around my hand wiggled and pulled.. out popped a 10 inch thick beautiful orange carrot that was amazing thick. So I ran inside grabbed my harvest basket and brought my daughter out to help.
Brooke insisted that I wash off the carrots so she could dive in and eat them all up right away. I washed them all and gave her 3 large ones.. they were gone within minutes. The rest have been de greened chopped up and stored in the freezer to cook with.. yummmm!
