Kid's Gardening - Carrots

Just a quick post to say I'm still alive, and an update on our garden fun.

I weeded and thinned the carrot bed today. Waiting this long to thin means we all end up with some baby carrots to munch on - not necessarily a bad thing.

The girls kept running up to the garden fence, begging for more.

I'm starting to wish I'd planned for more space for carrots - they seem to be a favorite. I look forward to harvesting, when I can let the girls have at it. Watching a little one pull and pull and pull until finally, the carrot lets go and she lands on her bottom... and then watching her do it all over again. Yep, good times to come in the carrot bed!

In the meantime, my lawn is littered with these:
