The planting frenzy carries on here at Sweetwater as we fill our freshly tiled fields with Provider green beans. These green beans are not only as economical as their variety name suggests with high yielding plants, they are also quick to come! By April we all ought to be enjoying the crisp snap of these delicious bean pods. In the meantime, while we continue to harvest our Cosmic Purple carrots, many have been curious about their otherworldly appearance. The special hue of the purple carrot not only makes this veggie “kid-friendly,” it is produced by the high level of anthocyanins, an antioxidant, that are likewise found in blueberries. Also these danver classified, or shortly-rooted and fat, carrots are awesome for juicing!
