January Garden? Carrots? What?

We have fresh carrots. I should have dug the rest of them up from the garden in early December before the ground froze. But November and December were so unseasonably mild, I kept delaying it. I figured as long as the tops were green and healthy looking, the carrots were still happily growing below. And then I forgot about them - out of sight, out of mind - until Saturday when I was puttering around the yard enjoying ridiculously warm 65 degree day.

A nasty freeze earlier in the week had nipped some of the tops, but the dirt was still soft and crumbly from the mostly mild winter. And while this was an accident, it's most certainly a happy one. Now we have a big bunch of delicious carrots to eat up - nothing like a little garden produce in January!
