We have carrots!

A quick post to show you today’s harvest – a handful of carrots! What a great treat to pulls these wonderful veggies from the garden to eat knowing they cost pennies each and taste so good, completely 100% organic right out of my own backyard, amazing.

My favorite way to cook carrots is along side a roasted chicken. With the chicken in a roasting pan I peel the carrots and then cut then into 1″ chunks. I then put them into a 8×8 Pyrex and fill it with water to the top. Cover with foil and with the oven at 375Ėš after the chicken has been in for a half hour – put the carrots in the oven. In one hour you can remove them both and they will be so, so good! Drain the water into a pan (save the water to pour into your veggie garden once cool) – put the carrots in a serving dish with a tablespoon of butter along with salt and pepper šŸ™‚ Yum!

More thank likely the next veggie up for harvest will be a few bell peppers. I have red, green and orange ones growing and they are looking real good. They are currenly a tiny bit smaller than a baseball so should double in size but with lots of water and a ton of sun they will be good to go in no time.

First Day of Summer is Monday! Wow that’s also the day Apple releases the new operating system for the iPhone iOS4 šŸ™‚ I’m excited for that too….
