2014 in Review: Our Top 3 Favorites

We don’t just grow produce to sell and share with you. We also grow it to eat for ourself! You won’t see anything on our stands that we ourselves won’t take home, cook, and devour. With that in mind, we wanted to share with you our top 3 favorite from the garden last year.

At 3rd place is. . .

CARROTS

This one I did not expect. I’d grown carrots once before Derek and I were married. The pot was too small, the soil kinda clay-ish, and over used. The carrots ended up tasting mostly like soap. Eh. I consigned to the fact that maybe this is what real carrots taste like.1890565_813897291962356_5130043791584719012_o

Not so with these babies! Derek and I chopped one up to taste right after harvesting the first round. We both looked at each other in surprise. Sweet, crunchy, a flavor far more vibrant that the store bought kinds, yet not being soapy tasting. Needless to say that didn’t make it past dinner time to the market.

In fact, I’m not sure any of them made it to the Noelridge market last year at all. In 2015 Derek is determined to expand his carrot rows. I’m definitely looking forward to some fresh carrot salads this summer, God willing they grow well again.
