Winter chores are in full swing here – mostly collecting firewood. But today as we were walking past the garden, imagine my surprise when I glanced over and saw carrots popping out of the ground!
I guess that between the frost heaving them up and the erosion from drenching rains the other day, a lot of carrot tops were exposed so it was either bury them again or pick them!
How often do you get to eat freshly picked carrots (and a random parsnip) at the beginning of February?!
They were served with stuffed peppers made from our own green peppers which I halved and froze last summer, topped with cherry tomato marinara sauce that I also made and froze last summer with a side of our own mashed potatoes, which we’re still eating through from last year!
Eating from our garden in the midst of winter…it’s a good thing!
