Bunches of roots (radish, carrot, turnip, spring onion) will be featured this week as we try to juggle harvesting in between rains! I’m especially excited about the carrots we’ve been harvesting since they were wintered over, meaning we planted them last fall, weeded them meticulously (thank you Mia and Laura!) and then covered them in a thick layer of mulch that made a nice barrier between the carrot tops and the snow. It’s great to see how we can extend our season in this climate without the use of plastic.
Lauren Nixon created a delicious, healthy and absolutely gorgeous recipe using the carrot and sweet potatoes. Feel free to share and check out laurennixon.com for more info about Lauren’s work. I especially recommend following Lauren on instagram!
