We are growing a lovely batch of carrots in the garden this year. I planted them in the remains of the hugelkultur bed from last year...remember that? This year I just moved the pile of soil and rotted logs around and made two more beds to extend the garden the length of the chicken run. The soil is nice and loose from all the compost and my carrots are getting HUGE. And delicious. Especially dipped in hummus. Yum.
