and we have carrots! like the beets, the third time is a charm. i was curious how they were doing, kind of assuming they weren't doing anything at all as in past years. so i was quite surprised when a bright orange gem popped up.
these carrots of ours won't last past the weekend. every time i turn my back tanner is yanking up another one to eat. the first evening he ate at least ten. that's cool though. it's the first vegetable he will eat raw. he won't even eat the store bought carrots raw. but these, the ones he helped me sow from seeds his tiny fingers dropped into holes, he gobbles up. noah too. and the neighborhood friend.
and for that, these orange gems of mine are most certainly the most smile worthy crop i've reaped to date.
