I love the way they stack their carrots at Sun Sprout Farm. The color block of bright orange provides such a pop of color against their wall of forest greens. Each carrot is like a stalk of art. And the taste? Sweet, clean and crunchy when eaten raw. Sweet smooth and silky when cooked on the grill or in a pan. Lately, I’ve enjoyed tossing them on the grill with their stems. They are particularly delicious if they get a nice char and theirs are the perfect size to eat from the stem.

LawnChair Theater Returns with the perfect play for the middle of summer.
