In Which I Finally Outwit the Insects

A few months ago, I poked 16 holes in the dirt, dropped in 16 carrot seeds, sprinkled everything with a bit of water, and crossed my fingers.

Today, my nephew and I pulled five full-grown carrots from the earth. I can't decide what recipe is special enough for these beauties, but I'm looking forward to finding out!

I like to eat the first fresh carrots of the season straight up. Really get the flavor of them.

looks like you are doing Mel s Square Foot Gardening - great system ! I must try to grow more carrots - swiss chard is really easy to grow if you like it.
