Buffalo Ridge Orchard

Growing Quality Local Produce Responsibly

Sweet Carrots

We have been enjoying the carrots from out hoophouse this week.  We harvested extra carrots for the NewBo City Market and Iowa City Holiday Market.  It wasn’t until early Saturday morning that we realized that the Iowa City market is actually next week.  Although the early morning drive to Iowa City was delightful Vern and Mary were wishing they could have spent a few more hours asleep.  Luckily we were able sell most of the extra produce at the NewBo City Market.  We did have some left over carrots and leeks which I promptly used for a delightful carrot, leek, split pea soup.  Of course there were less carrots then I had originally planned for the soup because I just couldn’t stop munching on them as I was preparing the soup.  There really nothing to compare to garden fresh fall and winter carrots.

About buffaloridgeorchard

Buffalo Ridge Orchard grows vegetables, apples, and pears for local coops and farmer's markets. We have over 25 different types of new and classic apple varieties. In 2011 we installed our first moveable hoop house which allows us to grow greens and root vegetables in the winter and get an early start on tomatoes and extend the season for other vegetable crops.
