For the first time I planted Carrots in my garden this year. They came up as expected, but I wasn't sure whether there were any Carrots under the nice tops. We had tried pulling some and either the stems broke off or what we got was about the size of a pencil. So, this morning I got the shovel and started digging them up. There were Carrots there, although not as big as I had hoped. The following pictures show the crop and what I did with half of them. The other half I gave to our neighbors Dale and Emmy. I had made a Carrot cake in the past that they liked, so now they have the Carrots to make one.
This is the crop of Carrots. I used half and gave half to the neighbors.
This is the Carrot cake hot out of the oven.
This is the cake with icing.
It was good.
