Happy Groundhog's Day!


Six more weeks of winter?! No way. We can't take it, so we're bribing our groundhog. A few carrots maybe? We dug these up yesterday! We were completely surprised and there were plenty of squeals. It's so much like an Easter egg hunt, digging up root vegetables. These had been totally forgotten about in our garden. They were seeded this summer and we only found them when we were getting a bed ready for potatoes. It never ceases to amaze me that our food can grow into something so sweet and crispy from a teeny tiny seed.

Your carrots look super delicious; did the podlings enjoy them too ?

What a fabulous surprise!!!! I'm feeling your pain a little on the weather. Our high yesterday was 37, and dropped to 34 for my tennis clinic (in the dark). Lots of fun, but not nearly as exciting as finding those little carrot treasures.
