I have a carrot!

I have a confession to make. I never thinned my carrot patch. Granted, I didn’t think that I had any carrots growing for the longest time. So I finally got around to thinning out a few, and while munching on the thinnings I had the bright idea to see if I had any big carrots. I pulled one and my eyes about bugged out! HOLY COW, I have a real carrot. This is a first for me as I have never grown carrots before.

I also had to pull a beet so I could look at it better. Sometimes you just have to be a little crazy and do something like that.

Tonight I planted kohlrabi, rutabaga, and broccoli for my winter garden. Hopefully I can get the seeds to sprout. I plan on taking over the potato bed that got decimated by blight and planting some more winter garden stuff there.

    And it’s a great looking carrot at that! I need to get my fall garden in the ground too.

    Ok, I’m going to go check my carrots tonight when I get home! I hope mine look at good as yours!

    Leigh – Well, it’s a week later and we still have a list of things to plant. I think Robin’s enthusiasm for winter gardening will go up as her need to water the summer garden goes down.

    Lynn – I haven’t seen any carrots since that one. I hope yours are doing well.
