Carrots

All the polytunnel carrots are now safely harvested in and tucked up in the freezer, some sliced and some left whole.

A trayful of sliced carrots ready to be open frozen.
All were blanched briefly, and then cooled rapidly before open freezing. I find this the best way as then the frozen veggies are free flowing, you just have to remember to give them a shake after about an hour or they will weld themselves to your tray, plastic trays are better really as they have a bit of flexibility.

The only carrots left on the farm now are the three lots in the tyres outside the back door. These are a lot smaller than the polytunnel ones were, so will probably be harvested next month.
I'm going to have a go at planting some more to see if I can get a late crop in.

  1. My goodness, you are so industrious! I have a couple of spare tyres (other than the ones round my middle ;-)) - great idea to grow carrots in them.

  2. I'll be interested to see how your frozen carrots do
