Harvesting Carrots


We harvested the last of the carrots today, with the help of a cute class of 1st graders.



I’ve decided carrots are the funnest thing to ask small children to harvest. No matter how many times it happened, every time a child pulled on a carrot green and a real, actual, orange carrot came up, they acted like they had just successfully performed magic.


There was a constant chorus of exclamations of surprise and pride and joy coming from around the garden.


What we didn’t eat we gathered up and delivered to Plant a Row for the Hungry along with kale, green beans, and some final radishes.
