Congrats, we never got carrots this year. Not sure what we did wrong.
These started out so slowly, but I ended up with a nice little crop!
Were the carrots difficult to pull/dig due to the dry conditions? Home-grown carrots have such a wonderful flavor, unlike those bland and tasteless baby carrots from the grocery store.
I decided to pull them after the day of drizzle we had! They came up pretty easily!
Do you ever overwinter any? I love digging them in March – sweetest carrots you ever tasted!
How are those new garden shoes working out?
My parents always pulled them “after the first frost”. They swore the carrots were sweeter that way. Last year I left a row in and covered them, but they rotted in the ground….it was to warm last Winter! A rare Winter for us here in Southern MN.
Love your boots/shoes? An awesome garden photo this morning!!
These are my daughters muck boots that I borrowed!
Thank you for your very kind comment, I so appreciate it.
And how beautiful they are! 🙂
Thank you, and they are very sweet too! I love them straight out of the garden.
Mmm…what took their dirt?
This was the last bunch I pulled from the raised beds! I thought they just looked pretty fresh from the soil. And they tasted so good. 🙂
sob, sob, sob! But loving your boots/ clogs 🙂
It feels so good to have the beds empty and cleaned up. Hope to add some compost to each one yet this Fall, and give a little stir.
These muck boots belong to one of my daughters–cute plaid. I still have not found a replacement for my Boggs. 😦
They look delicious and they are MUCH bigger than the ones I got from my CSA. Enjoy.
These are probably the best ones I have grown for a few years….will have to go back and check the variety and put it on the list for next years garden!
