Harvesting Your Veggies

We have had a lot of fun watching gardens grow over winter. One of the biggest questions is how do we know if our carrots are ready. If you have one of the Rainbow Carrot or Babette Carrot Mixes, you can harvest them once they look finger-sized. Below is our harvest of a Rainbow Carrot. We grow several species of carrots and we usually check and pull several sample carrots before we use a garden fork to pull out our whole crop. Our harvest time is usually mid to late April. Soak carrots in an ice-bath for 10 minutes to increase their storage life. Place dried carrots in a ziploc bag and enjoy!
