A Few Picks

A couple of months ago we noticed something growing in one of the planter beds in our backyard.  Lonnie and I asked the children about it and if any of them happened to know who planted something and if so what it was.  Michelle asked if whoever did it was going to be in trouble.  We assured her that no one was going to be in trouble we just were curious.  She then proceeded to tell us that she planted carrot seeds.  Oh really.  And boy did she.  There are even carrots growing in the grass just outside of the planter.  Obviously she wasn't too careful with planting the seeds.  Anyhow, I went to pick some of them today and this is what we found! They are huge!  The ones on the left I just bought at the store.  Interesting comparison.  We also have planted many more things such as strawberries, red and green peppers, tomatoes, grapes, cucumber, corn, lettuce, squash, green onion, and more (I just can't remember)!  This is our first garden and it sure has been fun for everyone!
