Check out these delicious peas and carrots I harvested from my garden a few weeks ago! The peas are from these organic seeds I planted in the late fall, and the carrots have been slowly growing in the garden since last summer. I'm not sure why the carrots took so long. I think our garden soil still needs a lot of enriching. I really have to get around to tending the compost bin so we can add compost to the garden after the winter veggies are done.
Luckily, the peas seem happy despite the bad soil. I actually harvested more of them last weekend. I eat them whole--pod and pea together--and they are extremely tasty. I think freshness really makes a big difference.
Meanwhile, my beets and onions are slowly growing--helped recently by some much-needed rain. Beets take a really long time to grow, though. So, I must be patient.
