I don’t like digging carrots

And that’s why I’m doing it in November.  I’m lucky there’s no snow.

Nothing like having an audience.  How do they know I’m digging carrots? (they like carrots)

At least the garden hose isn’t frozen.

I manage to get everyone (me) and the dog (okay, just me) soaking wet.

It’s time consuming, back breaking, dirty, and tedious.

I don’t like digging them but I like eating them!  I guess that’s why I’m doing it.  I’d better get back at it or it won’t get done.  I see carrot salad in my near future!

What’s your favourite way to eat carrots?

    • Hi Yolanda. Your winters must be a lot milder. We can do that until mid December, maybe even up til Christmas. After that the ground is frozen. Our frost line is 6 feet down. I’ve stored them up in my cold room so they should be good for the winter.

  3. Carrots and peanut butter! Honestly, I’ll add carrots to just about anything. This was the first year I had success with carrots in the garden and I’m really encouraged. What my trick was: plant between peas and spinach. The buffer will protect them much more successfully than interplanting with radishes.
