21 October

My raised beds didn't produce as well as previous years, and I suspect that tree roots have found their way up into them and are taking all the nourishment. I haven't had a chance to dig them over yet, but will have to do it soon, although a rotator cuff tear in my right shoulder is creating a problem!

Anyway, I planted some Nantes carrots rather later than I should and kept my fingers crossed. They did grow, but oh so slowly. I really thought I wouldn't get anything at all. I pulled one up this morning to check and was surprised to find that although small the carrots were really plump and healthy-looking.

These are what I pulled less than an hour ago. They'll be on the supper plate tonight with roast chicken!

I might as well piggyback onto this posting I made earlier today.
Those carrots ended up on our supper plate with a roast chicken breast, broccoli, sage & onion stuffing, small red potatoes, and homemade gravy.
The carrots were lovely.
We are gravy babies!
This is not my plate. I have to shed 20+ lbs so am downsizing my portions!

Your carrots and your dinner looks delicious, BBQ. Makes me hungry just looking at it
:lol:

Want to lose weight? Skip the gravy altogether or if you can't, try to cut back the amount.
