Fresh from the Garden

This is from my latest trip to our garden plot. To the left you have "pile 'o lettuce" (and I gave away a bag that big from the same trip, too). In the center you have carrots and 'taters. And to the right are the mutant carrots (closeups at the bottom). It's been a lot of fun to have a garden, and I am amazed at how much food can come out of a 4x20 space. We've been eating lettuce from it for almost two months (and giving away bags of it, too), and we've pulled a few carrots out before this, too. Squash, corn, watermelon, and cukes are on the way.

That is awesome! (The garden... but also/esp the carrots, haha)

In Ecuador, I remember the carrots were HUGE! Like I would see carrots three or more inches in diameter! It was nuts!

But THOSE things? Your mutant carrots definitely win the prize for craziest vegetable I've seen. Do your kids think they're cool or creepy?

Marshall, I hate that carrot so much. Mary's reaction was mine. Freaky is the only word. But I feel like if you marketed that, you could charge extra for extra carrot space. I want to know how that happened...
