Carrot Harvest

While I was visiting my parents last week, my brother harvested his carrots from the garden. After lots of effort building raised beds and nurturing them all summer, they were a bit disappointing. None of these is more than 2-1/2″ long. I think they’re adorable, but I think he was digusted with them.


No trip to New Orleans is complete without a trip (or two, or six…) to Cafe du Monde for beignets and coffee with chickory. I can take or leave the chickory in my coffee, but the beignets are not to be missed. Since we had ample opportunity to observe the operations at Cafe du Monde, we can tell you that they are in dire need of a workflow analysis. We’d be happy to do the job; they can pay us in beignets! 🙂
