In Praise of Carrots

Mmm, carrot love. Carrots are my favorite vegetable to eat. They are also my favorite vegetable to grow. With just some nice loose soil and regular watering you get these beauties. Nuggets of yumminess. Just as good raw right out of the ground as they are roasted. The greens are tasty in salad or soup - or as a treat for the bunny. My favorite thing about growing them aside from eating them is pulling one out of the soil  - how they just slide right out all gorgeous and golden like buried treasure. AND, you can leave them in the ground until you're ready to eat them. No worries about them over-ripening really all summer!
