Annual family carrot harvest!

Well, except the annual part as we didn’t grow carrots last year. And minus two of the five family members. Other than that, the headline is accurate. 🙂

This weekend, I decided to dig under all the bushy green carrot tops to see what was hiding underneath and had two excited helpers.  Turned out, there were a few carrots hiding under there.
