Our Garden Bounty

These are photos from March, when we harvested our long overdue carrots. They were all very small, and fairly tasty (one of the varieties we planted was really good, the other, not so much!). I think our soil was a wee bit dense, making it hard for the little carrots to grow. We'll try again at the end of summer and see how it goes - any suggestions for loosening up our soil? Any who, Miss E helped me pick our carrots... when you pick 'em all at once, using a shovel to dig 'em up, it's pretty easy!! We ate a few of the carrots, threw the yucky ones away and made the rest into the best carrot cake ever!! The Easter Bunny even got one of the cupcakes, and boy did he like it!
