Carrot Harvest

The last vegetable to be harvested in my garden is the carrot. While I have a small vegetable patch in the garden, I always reap more carrots that I am able to process and consume. However, this just means that friends and family can share in the carrot harvest.

The photo shows a portion of some of the carrots reaped this year. Most are blanched and prepared for freezing and lasts over the winter. Though carrots are usually orange in color they can come in other colors like white, yellow and purple.  Carrots, apart from being highly nutritious, can be used in a variety of dishes. They can be sliced, diced, roasted, stir-fried, juiced, used for carrot cakes or eaten fresh.

  1. Err …no! Of course, by definition too much of anything is bad for you, otherwise it would not be “too much”!

    They used to say that eating carrots could help you see in the dark, but I gather that that was put about during WW2 as a way of encouraging people to eat more carrots because there were plenty around and not a lot of anything else!
