Little Carrots

I’m so excited! My second crop of radishes are ready and the little carrots are ready to pull! 

I remember my grandparents vegetable garden; it seemed to take up their whole back yard. Rows of corn, potatoes, pole beans, onions and carrots!  

Grandpa would take my brothers and I out to the garden to “help” gather some veggies to take home.  It was like magic to us that growing under the feathery green tops were delicious crisp little carrots.  Grandpa would pull 3 or 4 for each of us and rinse them off at the garden hose. We would eagerly gobble them down asking for more! 

Funny, Mom had a hard time getting us kids to eat our carrots at the dinner table; I guess they tasted way better right out of the ground seasoned with a bit of dirt.

Keeping A Promise Made…

April 22, 2011 was Earth Day.   My sister-in-law, who happens to be one of my very best  friends, wrote an inspirational article in her blog sharing ideas to help live a “Greener” way.

I made a commitment to plant vegetables in my garden this year and I’ve finally been able to keep my promise. 

Last Sunday I planted  lettuce,  radishes and  carrots in patio planters.

After a week, the lettuce and radishes have started to sprout!   Aren’t they the cutest little radishes?!  Little Radishes
