Harvest Update

We pulled the last of the season's carrots this past week. The carrots kept going all the way to Thanksgiving this year! The total harvest for carrots this year was 74 lbs.

The first carrots were planted April 1st, then more about every 2-3 weeks later through June. With the staggered planting we had a nearly continuous harvest of carrots for 22 weeks, with an average of 3.36 lbs per week. We planted nothing but organic Scarlet Nantes this year. They are very sweet, tender and very well suited for this climate.
