First Big Root Vegetable Harvest of the Year

Today I harvested a whole bunch of root vegetables from my garden.

First, five kinds of carrot (Parisienne, Purple Dragon, yellow, white, and regular old orange), three kinds of beet (red, golden, and chioggia), and a few turnips:

Next, half of this year’s crop of russet potatoes:

Here are some of the veggies roasted for lunch:

And here’s dinner – sauteed Pairisienne carrots, boiled red beets, and sauteed spinach and purslane:

Everything was delicious!
