Oh well. I'll have more bugs than I'll know what to do with soon enough.
However, I did just happen to get a wild hair and pull some carrots. I pulled the white one and then got a bit over zealous and pulled the other, but aren't they cool!!!
Here's a very bad picture of the insides of them:
They boy jumped at the chance of eating the red carrot, but you see how he's done it:
He scooped out the orange inside since it was what he recognized as being a "carrot." I'll have to hand it to him. I was rather sceptical of eating the white one, myself, but it turns out that the white one was actually sweeter than the red one. There are a few more out there that are almost ready to pull, so I'm thrilled. They were small, only abut 3 oz total weight trimmed and cut all together, but they were good snacking before dinner, that they were.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
