houston, we have carrots

I know I've used the Houston, we have... title before, but for the carrots, it just felt right.

I'm pretty jazzed that I had three carrots ready to harvest. They are baby carrots, so smaller than what you might expect to see, but I am anticipating their sweetness. I will wash them up (per Ian's instructions as I held them up to show him from across the yard) and eat them for lunch. We may not have a ton out there, but lucky for me it's enough for this girl. Kev doesn't like carrots so I won't even force them on him (plus I think they are going to be so damn good and he really would like them and that would mean less for me). Actually I don't know if he really would like them. I think he'd say they were better than store bought baby carrots (which are really just large carrots that have been cored) but I still think he wouldn't be into them.

So, here you have them...my first carrots.

Your kitchen looks super inviting! I like carrots only row and fresh, even fresh juice from it. I don't like them cooked. Fresh from the garden, they are the best! Enjoy!

We've grown the short stubby ones, too - they're all so darn pretty right out of the garden! Everything's way behind here - the wet cool spring put us back a few weeks. But soon! 'Maters everywhere, I hope!
