Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - the carrot harvest

Okay, it would not feed an army but we have, perhaps 60 carrots to keep us going until Christmas. Joshua and I picked the and cut off the green leaves. I wonder if the Mrs, who thinks all food comes from Tesco, knows that carrots have leaves? Now and again I would lift up one which was perfectly shaped and sized and would say to Joshua that “we could sell this to Tesco” but we agreed that we would not do so as Joshua loves carrots.

We have already eaten many meals of home grown carrots this year, either honey glazed Joshua’s favourite, or in stews. What we have left is now stored in three large boxes of sand and should, I reckon since many of the carrots are pretty large, last us until the Christmas meal.
