Harvest Monday

This is my first ever Harvest Monday post, it is a fun one since we came across many more untouched carrots while 'digging for worms' yesterday.  My daughter kept yelling "potatoes" joyfully every time she came a cross a lump.  I guess a carrot with it's top missing buried underneath straw and dirt seems like a potato when you are 2.  Lol, and better yet, my son stated that he loved gardening with me.  Hmph.  Maybe he will actually help and learn this year, which would be lots of fun.



That says 1.83 pounds.  Very, very cool (the scale and the harvest, the scale is a recent purchase).  These are mostly Mokum or Bolero, I never remember which.  All I need now is that jar of peanut butter.

The carrots look great, and it's so neat that the kids were helping you harvest.

Thank-you, yes it was a fun day out in the fresh air!

These look great Kelly! Carrots are definitely like buried treasure. Like to hear your son is developing the gardening bug. Hopefully Jonathan will to. I think kids are just naturally curious about dirt and things that they can pick and put into their mouths. haha...they just need some positive reinforcement from us.

Peanut butter and carrots? Oh you're going to have to explain that one. I understand celery, but carrots? I suppose I'll have to try it.

Kelly said...

Oh Ribbit you have me laughing. Am I the only one who like to dip carrots in PB?

Dan said...

They look nice! Must be nice and sweet now, yum.

Very nice looking carrots you have there. It's a great time of year isn't it!

Kelly said...

It sure is Ottowa Gardener!

Dan- they smelled very sweet and carrot-like when we were pulling them up, none of that dirty, earthy fragrance you sometimes get. Can you believe I haven't tried one yet?
