This was the last of the carrot haul from the garden. Normally, I would leave them in the ground, but in anticipation of moving, we decided to pull them and store them in the fridge instead. Gonna be a ginger carrot soup in our future! I've already harvested this amount of carrots, together with these, from a patch of garden that was about 1' x 3'. That's really productive for a such a small space!
I prefer to leave them in the ground and harvest them all winter, just put a nice deep layer of leaves on top and they won't freeze. The longer they are in the cold ground, the sweeter carrots get. These are very sweet indeed!
On another note, so weird to have the boys out in short sleeves on Nov 20th in NH. Very discomforting, really.
