The nights in Fairbanks are getting longer and the days are getting cooler. But even as we settle in to our cozy home with the woodstove roaring there was still one more part of the garden to be harvested.
Our carrots were the last things left in the ground. Last year our carrots were so very good that I planted a larger section of the garden this year and we were excited to see how they did. With Abigail bundled up she and I headed to the garden. Abigail took a little nap on my back as I dug around in the cold dirt looking for each and every carrot.
We are so very excited about how our crop did this year. We filled an 18 gallon tote with our carrots and since that day have been eating them steamed, raw, and in casseroles, soups, pot pies and with moose roasts. I am looking for a good recipe for a carrot soup, any suggestions?
