Dear Farm Journal,

Although we’ve been plucking away at the carrot patch for awhile, today was our first harvest for the CSA. The Starburst Rainbow Blend variety is one of my favorite veggies on the farm, especially this year since we don’t have to fight the weeds to save them. The gals and I work our way down the row, separating root from the soil that has given it life and brought it to fruition. On the wash table, their vibrant hues jump to meet the eye. The aroma envelopes me in earthiness (even through my mask), but of all the senses to enjoy the carrot, taste takes the cake, oooh carrot cake!
