It’s time for another garden update. I have posted about my onions, my swiss chard, and now it’s time to show you my carrots.
The beets and carrots both needed to be thinned out again. The carrots that were thinned are shown above. I salvaged the bigger ones, and gave the runt carrots to the neighbors goats.
Who needs a compost bin when you can have goats!? New life goal: not only do I want a flock of chickens, (is this what they’re called? a flock..a herd..a bundle?) but I must own two goats. Not one, not three..but two. I can feed them my leftover food, and train my cats to ride them like horses. The carrots were stored in a mason jar for a day, and then they were turned into a delicious meal.
There on the left..are my precious baby carrots from my garden! Along with an onion from my garden, fried purple potatoes, butternut squash, roma tomatoes, all surrounding tricolor quinoa. This meal was perfect.

I’ll take that back in three minutes, but right now, you are totally living an adorable vegan fairytale; and I love reading about it! And the carrots are prettier than little miss muffet. This entire post just made me so happy. Mwah! 😀 xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Alex @ therunwithin
growing things on your own and fresh produce seriously is way better.

Ok, your neighbors have goats!?! That is soo cute!!!
I am so impressed with your garden. Looks great!!!
you two are so cute i just want to throw you into a fan and watch you splatter all around the room. And your carrots come in close second! Back pain is the worse, my hip has been bunk since moving…. the subsequent post pictures should explain why….
Hahaha this comment made me LOL!
Yay for baby carrots and running and hot tubs!! Such an adorable picture of the two of you!
Emily @ Skinny Fit
I hate strained muscles! I tend to just lay off the ones that are pull[ed]. Once, I pulled my hamstring muscle which hurt so I did a lot of just back and arm type workouts for a while until it got better. 🙂
Hope you back heals up!!
GAAAHHH I love those goats and funky carrots! Would yall mind adopting me?? 😀
Sending get well wishes for your back my friend! ❤
Sarah @ Feeeding the Brain and Body
Your neighbours have goats?! I live in a city where the only goats you see are in books! I wish I have goat neighbours! Nice looking dinner, manfriend definitely did a good job of arranging it! 🙂

I’m so impressed with the carrots- and those goats are just way too fun!
I am jealous you live so close to people that have goats! According to Cold Mountain (both book and movie) you only need a goat to live! They provide companionship, milk, and meat if needed… love that book 🙂
Great job on the garden too!
Feel better. The carrots look delicious. Can’t see the beets. *sigh*
Ha! I love the goats, that is awesome!! My husband has a bad back from competitive rowing and finds that running helps it feel better to0:)
Brandi@String Cheese Runner
Those vegetables look absolutely delicious! I seem to strain my muscles a lot, which I think is because I’m not strong enough. I’m constantly straining my hip muscles it seems like. I hope your back gets better!!
You and your Manfriend are SO cute together- he definitely sounds like a keeper! Hope your back is completely back to normal…nothing like an injury to set you back from meeting your goals! I pulled a shin muscle in December and it took a little over a month to recover which meant no running (much to my dismay)! My only advice: listen to your body….a few days off won’t make a difference to your fitness levels/training at all! Have a great weekend, Britt!
Thank you thank you!! I am listening to my body 100%!
cute goats hey…..and i once had a garden now am too lazy to make one because i moved to a diferent city…i hope your blog will motivate me with that…:)
Awww…cute goats! And I love the idea of your cat riding them!
SO sorry to hear about your back girlie 😦 I think it was smart that you stopped early so you didn’t make it any worse. After all, our backs are super important 😉
Life After Swimming
That picture of you two is the cutest thing I have ever seen! You are so freaking pretty!
You just made my day, thank you!!
Omg, I want the goats AND home grown carrots!!! I’m sorry you strained your back! 😦 That’s happened to me, and it’s no fun. I just had to completely rest for a few days and then it went away. Feel better!
roasted veg + coconut oil = AWESOME dinner!
ps – i just nominated you for the versatile blogger award! 🙂
hope your back is feeling better!
You are THE BEST! Thank you!!

Your food looks so healthy! Gotta love clean eating
Okay, first I thought the pic of the baby tiny goat like creatures was super cute…. but then I saw the pic of you and your man and was like OMGEEE CUTE NESS OVERLOAD. I love it. Please let that back heal…. and be careful at work. No more straining lumbar spiney things. You need to run disneyland like a champ and then tell me all about it.
After his marathon, Mr. Speedy didn’t strain anything but had a MASSIVE BLISTER that took up the majority of the bottom of his foot and he had to peel all the skin off like an onion. It was mega gross. He is okay now. His foot is only slightly funky looking and troll like.
I want some carrots now rawrrrrrr. And I appove your 2 goat dream. If the cats ride them like horses I just might pet them (the cats, not the goats)
YES YES my back is feeling better..sort of. No heavy lifting and lots of moving is working. I am going to be telling you about Dland before anyone else..be prepared.
OMG..pleaseeeeeee touch the cats! HAHA That comment made me die.
Those are like the cutest carrots ever. So tiny and adorable. Oh how I wish I had a garden now to eat yummy veggies like you.
Look at those adorable carrots 🙂
I had several goats growing up…Nala, Christina, Oreo, Buttercup, Rusty….the list goes on and on!! I even had leashes and and collars for them to walk them around 🙂
That is AWESOME!
oh yes, we want goats! how cute and awesome are they?!! and i love you and manfriend. You guys can cook for me anytime
Just A Smidgen
Hahaha.. maybe it should be a chook of chickens and a grunt of goats? And I’m so sorry to hear about your injury.. but what a treat to be served a feast like that!!
Anyways-so now that I have checked out your giveaway, I was reading through your potsts. You are hilarious! I actually used to own two goats but we got rid of them because they were really aggressive. Um and those carrots, they look to die for!
Boo, hope the back feels better, Britt. Manfriend is a true gem to take care of you and cook such delicious treats 😉
omg such cute goats!!!
wow carrots from the garden! i am so jealous! i have a tiny apartment and NO space for even a basil plant! lol!

Rach @ This Italian Family
