Washed beets and carrots using the washing/packaging machine with Karoline and Hannah today. The weather was great!

 

Random thought:

How would you describe the smell of carrots?

Helped harvested Kohlrabi today. It’s the first time I’ve seen this vegetable and brought some home. It takes about 2-4 months to grow into maturity, so this batch was probably planted around last February.

Apparently, many of my friends had never seen nor heard of it before as well. It could be eaten raw or cooked. It tastes somewhat like the stem of a broccoli.

I just love yanking things out of the ground, it’s very satisfying.

 

The name derives from the german word “Kohl” which means cabbage and “Rubë” which means turnip. So it literally translates to cabbage turnip, very creative.
