Tales of a Carrot Farmer

"I'm not a farmer, Mommy. I'm a little boy!" the Munchkin tells me adamantly every time we check on his carrots.

Well, you could have fooled me with that one, kiddo! Just get a load of that carrot we harvested last night. Small, sweet and deeeelicious! We washed it and ate it without peeling it, it was that tender.

We (I) went back out and harvested a few more to share with Gramma - along with the stealth zucchini that snuck up on me. Honest - I had just checked these plants on Sunday -and there was only one zucchini in progress. Seriously I think my neighbor has figured out how to splice her big zucchini into my plants seamlessly so I think they are mine and can't pawn them back to her...

Luckily we ALL like zucchini bread (don't forget the chocolate chips, though!)

One cucumber, some garlic chives and a bowl full of "tataytoes" (tomatoes) rounded out the evening's harvest.

Oh there is nothing better than eating straight from your garden. I love to eat the veggies while they are still warm from the Earth and Sun!
