Survivors of the Worst Snowstorm in 40 Years

carrotsHere in Portland we’re just coming out of two weeks of a royal snow and ice dumping. Our home saw at least two feet of snow and freezing temperatures. Today the snow is almost gone and our traditional Christmas rain is back.  This afternoon I ventured outside with two week’s worth of compost to dump in our bin. While in the backyard I discovered this pretty bunch of carrots still alive and well in the ground between our blueberry bushes. They weathered the storm well and will make a delicious addition to tonight’s pot of bean soup.
