This week's harvest is from my "other" garden at my mom's house in California, where I spent this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed some civilized weather (highs in the 70s, lows in the 60s) after enduring months of brutal heat in Middle America. Anyway, I sowed the seeds for carrots, sugar snap peas, and zucchini about three months ago during my last visit, along with some onions sets. That plus asking my mom on the phone how "my vegetables" are doing once a week is about the extent of my involvement with these vegetables.
Girthy Carrot on Saturday. After pulling the largest carrot, I stopped at five, because I didn't know what my mom would do with so many big carrots all at once. There are still another dozen or so of these in the ground. Ugh, why can't I grow carrots like this in my garden in Indiana, instead of the puny little matchstick ones?
