Final Winter Harvest

Signs of Spring are showing up everywhere! The frogs are singing, the hummingbirds are back and it is past due to harvest the last winter root crops.
Bolero Carrots ~ Purple Sprouting Broccoli ~ Parsnips
The weather has warmed some and the 'Bolero' carrots have gone a bit 'hairy' but nothing can compare to their flavor! This was my first attempt at 'Purple Sprouting Broccoli'... beautiful, but it seems to take up lots of garden space for a minimal harvest. The parsnips as usual are large and sweet.... now it's time to start seeding the brassicas and herbs for the garden.
Happy Spring Planting!
