Final harvest from the garden for 2007

On Saturday, December 15th, I pulled up the last row of carrots from the garden. I had set up my cold frame around them about a month ago, when the snow started falling. The cold frame is really just a big wood box with heavy-duty cellophane across the top. It works like a miniature greenhouse, and it keeps the snow off my plants. So, it let the carrots grow for another month when everything else had frozen.

Anyway, here’s a few pictures. This one shows the carrots before getting washed:

After scrubbing the dirt off, they look like food:

And in this picture I lined them up like little people.

I set the oven to 400 degrees, sliced all the carrots into little discs, tossed them in lots of olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme, then spread them out over a cookie sheet. Once the oven was ready, I put the cookie sheet in and set the timer for an hour. Then I went outside to shovel my driveway.

By the time I finished shoveling snow, the carrots were ready. I ate all of them while standing over the sink. They were so delicious I couldn’t stop eating in order to take any pictures.

I have more gardening pictures on flickr, including a lot more carrot pics.

    If there is a gravel road, it must be that the Auger is not touching the ground (ie, to collect rocks, which may be Snowblower and harm, if Best snow blower items close to the Blizzard. Most of the two-stage blowers are ideal for gravel roads.
