Beets and Carrots Harvested Today…

Thirty three huge beets and seven ugly gigantic carrots and I mean ugly. But, I ate one whole carrot yesterday, just as ugly and huge and it was as sweet as candy. They say, “Do not judge a book by its cover!”

33 beets and 7 carrots...
33 beets and 7 carrots…

I will most likely dig up a potato plant tomorrow and see what I got on my second attempt at growing a potato. If there is 28 potatoes again. I may have to find someone to take them. I just can not eat potatoes due to health reasons and I have eaten too many now. We will see…

Looks like the soil was too hard under the carrots and next year, I will make sure the carrot rows are extra deep in well worked soil. The beets were just fine, just as the onions were perfect. But carrots is something I have never grown successfully before and I call these ugly, but successful… 🙂

Carrots are not an issue, I will eat them everyday, but beets are an issue, for I have to pace myself with them. I am diabetic and beets and potatoes will bother me if I eat them too many and too fast. Potatoes a 100 times worse than beets, but beets will get me, occasionally… (Carrots do not, no matter how sweet they are?)

Time for borscht and carrot salad…
