Summer carrots

Bolero carrots at the top right, one purple haze carrot and two little finger carrots.

Yesterday I blogged that my summer carrots still weren’t ready, based on one tiny carrot that I pulled up last week. How wrong I was: the summer carrots are ready! I don’t eat very many carrots especially since the orange incident* a few months ago, so I am planning to leave most of these in the ground until my kids get back from camp. I am trying to instill the love of gardening in them, and nothing does this better than getting to harvest and eat good things.

(*The orange incident was truly unusual situation where someone made a big, big fuss about how orange they perceived me to be. My skin is not the least bit orange, but this person kept insisting that it was, and kept asking “You eat lots of carrots, yes?” No, I don’t eat lots of carrots, I don’t have orange skin and the fact that this person was a medical professional made the whole thing even more bizarre.)
