Frozen Carrot Harvest

     This is what I woke up to this morning, just before 7 o'clock. Beautiful enough to make me get out of bed and find my camera, which is remarkable since it was only 52 degrees inside! (I came home last night after the NOFA Conference to a broken pellet stove, and I'm pretty stingy with the propane backup heater. At least we have the back up heat;  this was not always so - tears were cried and mothers were called.) See how the lake has almost frozen over? Anyday now.

     Since I was up and needed to check the water in the chicken coop, I decided to get some carrots from the hoophouse for juicing. We always keep a good stash inside, but I've been watching it dwindle down to nothing, thinking that 'later' would be warmer. 'Later' turned out to be -2F, and I think I got about 3 intact carrots, with the rest coming out in 2 and 3 pieces. They made delicious juice - could have been warmer, though...


  1. What a stunning sunrise!! Gorgeous view! Lucky you! Carrots too... yummy. Well done. Good luck with your stove.

  2. Jennifer, Beautiful Sun Rise, great shot. Carrot Juice is that better than coffie in the early AM?

    Enjoy your Evening, hope you got the pellet stove Going.

  3. better than coffee? depends who you ask in this house! it's a draw - but I know that I don't put cream and sugar in my carrot juice, and my coffee has to taste like dessert.

  4. Just beautiful sunrise! The carrot photo is really great too. Yum

  5. I'm jealous of your sunrise! This is my first visit to your site, it looks like there are lots of gorgeous photos at which to look. Thanks for sharing!
