First Harvest Monday 2011

While doing some artwork during a brief break from the constant rain, Kyle and I stumbled upon some surprisingly green carrot greens.  This is what we found beneath the surface in one of our raised beds.  I've heard carrots can go through the winter, but never tried it.  They smell great.  I have yet to report on the taste.  I have no idea what variety these are.  It was pretty cool to pick something fresh from the garden on January 17th!

  3. You would be amazed how well carrots and parsnips winter in place. For really cold climates a little cover of some straw helps keep them diggable but other than that - no fuss!

  7. What a nice treat for the middle of winter. Carrots usually die here without protection, but sometimes in the middle of winter they are still fine - well if you can get them out of the soil.
