Well, last week I ended with “and we haven’t even harvested the carrots yet.” This week, Sarah, Jane and I gathered in the early morning to weed, then figured we could harvest as well. I took most of the rest of the beets and then we started pulling carrots. Boy did we have carrots. And did I mention the cabbages? The rabbits had been snacking on a number of them, but several were also perfect Beatrix Potter cabbages. My camera chose not to work this morning, but fellow gardener Lora snapped some cell phone shots.
I think we may have had about forty pounds today. Jane and I loaded it into her car while Sarah worked away weeding the small garden. For my sins, I am including a picture of me with the carrots. If that hair were Superman, it would be just about the time he bursts from his shirt in the phone booth.
Jane dropped some of the harvest at the cooler AFAC leaves for donations at the farm market. The rest she took home for delivery on Monday. We have lots more carrots and a few more beets and turnips to harvest, so you may be seeing those in the coming weeks.
