|It's only 3 or 4 inches long -but a true delight around here!|
This is the first time we've ever tried carrots. Truth be told, we were a little worried. We haven't had much success with root crops in the past, boy were we surprised! My nephew asked us why it looks so funny. I said, this carrot doesn't look funny. The carrots in the grocery stores are the ones that look funny.
Bel and the boys went blueberry picking at a local u-pick farm. They harvested 20 pounds. She froze many of them, but she also dried some. They are tasty!

We also bought 25 pounds of beets for 12 dollars from an Amish farm near us. It seemed like a good deal to us. Bel will freeze most of them. She loves, loves, loves beets and will eat them all winter long. She'll make a batch of pickled beets. Sorry I don't know the recipe.
