The weather is just to nice to stay in today so Kara and I decided to bring in a few carrots from the winter planting.
As I dig she held on to her favorites.
Kara is big into kissing, hard work means lots of kisses.
We had a time of keeping her from eating the carrots before they were washed. She continued to say "Yumm" then try to take a bite.
Yet more kisses, I am telling you this girl is all about kisses. Kissing in the garden is a great way to spend the afternoon.
Finally a clean carrot to munch on.
We pulled about 1/2 the bed of carrots. Now the real work begins.
The first wash is done, now on to the second wash were I will scrub the beauties with a veggie brush.
Kara pooped out on me and is down for a little rest, I am thinking that's a good idea!! I have most of the second wash on the carrots done but my hands are so water logged I am taking a little break before the action begins again. Its on to chopping, steaming and dehydrating, by the morning I will be ready to seal them in a jar or vacuum sealer bags. This was our first year to try and grow carrots over the winter and it worked out WONDERFULLY!!! We still have 1/2 a bed that I didn't pull, most were a bit on the small side so I will give them a more time to grow before I do another planting.
I love a day when we can get out and dig in the dirt, having hubby home to play along is great, having a grand with us is more than we deserve!!! SO BLESSED.
BTW, yes that is the real color of my hair, totally white (we have 3 grown DD remember) NO, that is not the real size of my body!! Bending over a raised bed adds 10 to 15 pounds, having a extra large tee shirt on adds an additional 10 to 15 pounds, hubby with a camera who doesn't have a clue how to take attractive slimming photo's I figure added and additional 10 to 20 pounds don't you think? So that's around 50 pound over weight YIKES (the total should be 20 pounds, give or take 10 pounds, I will go with the take side)
