Fresh from the garden: carrots

Fresh from the garden: carrot
We've been harvesting carrots for a while now. I'm so glad I seeded these in August. They've provided ongoing harvests for months now. Do you know what Wink's favorite snacks are?
Yep. Carrots. She loves them. And going out to the garden and pulling her favorite snacks right out of the ground? She gets so excited she spins.
Wink dances for her snacks
Probably not so much to harvest now that we've had such cold weather here. 15 degrees is what my car registered the other morning. That's cold. And that's cold news for overwintering tender plants, or winter crops.
My fav snacks from the garden
Gotta get 'em while you can. And fresh snacks from the garden outside the front door has been good to Wink. My dog the locavore.

Mason loves his carrots too!

I do mine in a skillet with maple syrup or honey with toasted pecans to finish them off. Yum.

A canine health guru. How did you manage that? Cutie pie. Freezing rain here last night and this morning. Thank God it's melting now. The thermometer says 39 degrees. How strange.
