I saw snow this morning. Just a few flakes amid the general early-morning wet and gray, but they were there. Apparently fall decided not to appear at all this year and we skipped straight to winter? Actual flurries are due tonight and tomorrow.

I harvested a few carrots last night (for carrot-bean-tomato soup). I can’t say for sure whether it’s true that carrots are sweeter after frost, but they tasted good. I’m trying to decide whether I should pull them all up now or leave them a while longer. It’s going to get warm again next week…supposedly.
