Morris finally unearthed his carrots this week. We were pleasantly surprised some of them were the size of his dad’s fingers, which is much larger than we’ve ever grown before. We forgot they were there, until one night this week, Morris asked, “Can I pull my carrots now?”
“Oh! Of course!” I responded.
And, he pulled, and out came about ten, decent-sized orange carrots. I told him they taste very different than carrots from the store…and he hasn’t asked to eat them yet.
We’ve also harvested many jalapeno and chilli red peppers from Morris and Rex. Honestly, we would can some delicious jelly if I had the energy. My energy has moved away from the garden and toward home projects, like painting the front door (red, of course!), adding shades and a curtain in the living room to prepare for the cold weather.
Still, I can’t quite bring myself to ask the boys to clear our their gardens yet… I’m still holding on.
