Plants, animals, and people living in Coastal North Carolina are influenced by large, shallow bodies of water, called "Sounds." The Sound's daily influence can be a challenge or a gift. The word "sound" also means "in good condition; not damaged, injured, or diseased." Sound Harvest and Garden will try to reflect both those meanings, as I aim for sound vegetables, herbs, chickens, eggs, and ornamentals, all from my home by Core Sound.

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.
