Winter isn't so bad

Well, here in coastal North Carolina winter isn't so bad! Harvesting carrots, broccoli, and tangerines today, on the solstice. Days now will start getting longer again, although the wintery cold, for us, is still to come. Have a wonderful holiday season that hopefully includes something nice from your garden.

Going underground

Carrots always surprise me. I see their feathery tops every day, but unlike other root vegetables, I tend to just forget something is underneath. I guess it pays to be a bit dim about some things, because the beauty and crunch and sweetness of fresh carrots all are even more pronounced when you suddenly remember and pull up a handful of these.
