Carrots are good for my eyes?!
Old wives' tales have something to them, after all.
According to research, while carrots can't turn back time on eye problems, it can, with the help of Vitamin A, help keep the eyes healthy to avoid future degeneration.
They've also been studied to lower cholesterol, reduce the incidence of cancer, stop memory loss, prevent diabetes, and bolster your bone health.
This weeks' carrots hail from the greenhouse, comfortably nestled by the ever-growing trellised cucumber lines.
While greenhouse carrots aren't typical because they take the place of more lucrative greenhouse crops, we are happy with our decision to have them early!
You probably don't need much help deciding what to do with this weeks' carrots, but with this heat, I would recommend grilling them, or turning them into delicious popsicles.
Anything to keep the oven off, am I right?
