Not much is going on in the garden here at Polyface. A little bit of pruning, planting fruit trees, mulching, and lots of planning for when and where to plant things starting next month!
In one of my garden beds, protected under a thick layer of straw are some of the most delicious carrots you will ever taste! When the carrots go through the frost they turn really sweet and sugary.
I had planted the carrots back in September and then before the weather was cold enough to freeze the ground I covered them with a thick (8″-10″) layer of oat straw. What fun to go outside when it is cold and pull up fresh carrots!
