wintered carrots

Cleared off the leaves and other debris that drifted onto my Carrot patch overwinter, and found that quite a few plants are regrowing.
I though bleh, they're just going to be rotted like last year's winter survivors, but no. Pulled up one small root that looked okay and Isa was brave enough to taste it (just big enough for one bite). She said it was yum!
So I'm going to let these keep growing and maybe we'll have some early spring carrots (if the heavy march rains don't rot them).
