Garden surprises

What a pleasure it is to dig around in the garden and find a few unexpected surprises. It's hard to believe I know, but some of our carrots wintered this year. We thought that they had long ago died off. And so, it was very exciting to see them out there covered in a blanket of rich soil waiting, oh so patiently, to be found.
Owen was happy for the chance to put his little red shovel to work digging up the dirt all around them and then stopping to explore each one as he lifted them from the ground.

I sure hope they are as tasty as they appear to be. I'm certainly willing to try them out.
