The Last And A First

We had our first frost last night.  Or close to it.  So before all was lost, I pulled in the last few big tomatoes.  There are still a bunch on the plants that I covered up though because the next few days are said to be sunny and warm.  But the biggies needed to come inside just in case. 

I also picked all of the remaining basil.  I'll make a big batch of pesto and freeze to eat later. 

But the exciting news is that carrot.  That is the first time I have grown an actual, edible carrot, y'all!  I've planted seeds for years but they just never grew.  This year though, I have a bunch of them.  And after a good wash, this one the most delicious petite carrot ever.  The rest I left in the ground a while longer.  As you can see, this is not exactly setting records for size.  But the fact that I grew it at all is a mini orange miracle. 

Admit it, that's the cutest carrot you've ever seen!
