Not Bugs Bunny - but just look at these fabulous carrots! And almost into May! They have been in the ground almost one entire year, completely covered in leaves so the tops never freeze. Many have fed on these purple/black beta carotene treasures. Nope, not the sweet things you buy from a store, but the highest level of this nutrient found in a vegetable. Garlic purposely un harvested in the fall has sprouted through the deep mulch in regular intervals to coincide with carrot harvesting. You will love sprouted garlic in any food, not as strong and Oh, so flavourful!
