Late Fall Baby Carrot Harvest
Today in Minnesota, we had unseasonably warm weather. These days we are spending as much time outside as possible with the thought of a long cold winter looming. It was the perfect opportunity to harvest the last carrots from the garden.
This was our first year with our raised bed gardens, and I've learned a lot. It is nice to still be able to harvest this late in the season. Next year I will NOT be planting baby carrots again. While they aren't a lot of work, it just doesn't make sense to grow such a small carrot in limited space.
The kids are excited about eating them and they really do taste much better than what you get at the store. Yes, these still need to be washed, but I can't wait to eat them!
