Carrots are Here

Agridude - Jason and his carrotsThese are the first carrots of the year.  They are delicious on salads, but I really want to pickle some of them.  I probably have around 3 pounds total from this summer harvest.  I will be planting way more in the next week.  Those should be ready to harvest in mid to late September.  It has been anywhere from 90 to 101 degrees for the last 8 days.  This is not ideal for germination, so I will plant my Fall crops once the heat breaks.  My tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and basil are doing great with the heat.  Look for a full garden update in the next week.  Heat and mosquitoes have made the last week unbearable in the garden.

  1. Carrots look good. We have grown them once out here and they were really good to eat. Seeing this makes me want to go buy some seeds and start some in our garden. Sorry to hear about the mosquitos and heat, don’t have any of that to deal with in San Diego…
