August 1, 2009

Ha! And you thought I was gone.  Well, I am. The miracle of forward publishing.

I hadn't planned on posting anything, but while I was out with my Aunt doing a wet run at the watering schedule for my garden, my kids went with us.  While out in the main garden, Logan asked politely if he could pick a carrot.  Like I would say no, hehe.  I was busy filling a SWC when my Aunt made a comment about how big it was.  I turned around and saw this!

I swear that Purple Haze carrot is 8 inches long and over an inch in diameter at the stem.  Very cool.  Even cooler that he wanted me to use the hose to wash it off before he proceeded to eat the entire thing!


I actually got to share the little one with my little one.  He sort of likes carrots, mostly because his older brother does.  He had a few bites and I ate the rest. It was sweet and crisp.  Perfect in other words.

Have a great week!

Enjoy your garden.
