First Carrots

The kitchen garden is my greatest challenge. The planning and rotation of crops takes much thought and effort. The best part is, of course, harvesting and eating the crops. I planted carrots for the first time this Spring and they are so tasty, especially when eaten with fresh garden peas straight from the pod.

The soil at Holly Grove is ideal for root crops; deep, light and free draining - sometimes a bit too free draining! Well, there's no pleasing a gardener...too light, too heavy, too wet, too dry...
