Gardens: The Gift that Keeps Giving

Here in the upper Midwest some of our gardens have been 'done' for a few weeks now. Most of mine has, but I still have carrots, tomatoes, peppers and a couple other things holding on for dear life. Since the temperature hasn't gone down to freezing yet I'm still picking tomatoes and rooting for the peppers to grow and grow.

This week I visited the garden to pull all the carrots.




What you may not be able to see immediately from the photo is that the normal sized carrots are on thye right... and then you have those on the left.

They almost look like squat pumpkins! Huge!



I thought they may taste bitter with their large size but didn't... they were tasty and good. I've started the preparation of them to be used in muffins, breads, bars and cakes.

Yum!
