Carrot Top Pesto is the bee's knees

Harvesting carrots took longer than I expected as a first-time grower, even when it says "easy to pull" right on the seed packet! You pull up the root vegetable to find it inundated with dirt and, well, roots. Far from the clean, peeled, consistently shaped and sized carrots you see bagged and ready at the grocery store or produce market. It occurs to me now that all the carrots I've been buying have been glamorized. Even more plentiful than the orange (or purple or white) "meat" is the carrot top. The ratio of carrot top to carrot flesh definitely requires some creative problem solving.
