Last weekend I harvested our remaining beets and carrots--lots of carrots. I never thinned them as thoroughly as I've heard one is supposed to, but that didn't seem to bother these 'Purple Haze' and 'Scarlet Nantes' varieties. Not wanting these beauties to sit in the refrigerator, I made a huge pot of carrot-ginger soup and froze half of it.
I also saved a handful for roasting and salads this week. I'll definitely sow these winners (from Botanical Interests) again next September!
