The birds are singing, the weeds are blooming, and it finally stopped raining, briefly, after some significant downpours. It is time for the gardener to start gardening.
Before applying my handy tiller to the beds in the southeast corner, I paused to pluck the remaining carrot tops. And actual carrots came with them. I keep planting carrots, because I still have seeds. But they never amount to much in one summer. These seem to have overwintered well. In fact, these are the largest carrots I have ever grown.
So I have brought them in, the last of last year's harvest, and hopefully harbingers of a good harvest to come this year.
