we have it fairly easy when it comes to feeding our kiddos goodies from the potager. they are basically little rabbits. but even then, growing carrots that are not orange ranks high on the hart family excitement scale. i ran out to the overgrown jungle that has replaced our garden and pulled a handful of carrots this afternoon.
a little stumpy, but cute. we have included "add a ton more soil to the raised beds" for next spring's to-do list. i think it will help the carrots growth.
so, what color do you think purple carrots are inside? we had never had one before, so we played a game. we brainstormed the three most likely colors. then each of us picked one. (jesse picked purple.)
then the unveiling. what would it be? the excitement was building. children were giggling with anticipation.
it is. . .yellow? huh. yes there is some green, but really we all basically agreed it was yellow. which was hilarious to my little ones. absolutely hilarious.
okay. yellow. super tasty purple and yellow (with a bit green) carrots. yum.
