Carrots

Carrots

Why we love them: Carrots are a perennial favorite—delicious raw or cooked, and they can be prepared in a variety of ways.

What you get: The pigment that makes carrots orange—beta carotene—is the same compound the body converts to vitamin A, a vitamin essential for vision, healthy skin and the immune system.

In your garden: Plant carrots as soon as the soil can be worked. They thrive in fertile sandy loam.
