|But the purple ones had the best flavor.|
Carrots generally stay good in the ground for a while so not picking them is the best way to store them until you want to use them. But I picked one earlier this week that was cracked and had some worms in it, so I decided to pick the rest. They also last a long time in my 'fridge in a bit of water.
Carrot-pulling is so fun. You never know how big they're going to be. The seeds I got were a mixed trio of yellow, orange and purple carrots, but by far, the yellow ones did the best.
The other thing I harvested were the sunchokes! Also equally fun. The plants were 8ft or so tall, so I just grabbed the thick stalks and yanked up. Most of the tubers came out attached, and the ground was so dry that I didn't even have to wash them off. I'm so excited to eat them!
|Yay for root vegetables!|
Abby's is the one on the top right, Frannie's is below that, Pearl's is at the bottom left, and Elsa's is above Pearl's. I love Elsa's eggs because they're super round with almost a purple hue.
Also, Elsa has gotten very social lately. She follows us around wherever we go. It's really cute.
