From the Earth



We pulled a few bunches of carrots this evening. Enough to make some nice meals... in a soup, sliced in salad, sauteed, roasted, or boiled and pureed into baby food. Besides the pumpkins and herbs, the carrots are the last of the garden. 

Until next year...

  11. Your carrots are beautiful. I remember how much fun it was pulling carrots and potatoes from the garden as a teenager. And speaking of beautiful ... the twins are too, of course! How big they are getting. Soon they'll be walking.

  13. Yum, I love fresh carrots from the garden. I like them raw, (only way my parents could get me to eat veggies as a child, still my preference).

    And those "sweet pea" children are treasures. I can bet each day is a new memory to cherish . . .

But that pic with hubby and your sweet babies? It is epic! I think I'm gonna be in a good mood all day after seeing this. The little Margaret? She is really starting to look like you right? Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  19. Love this! I haven't yet ventured to carrots in my garden. Next year, though! Isn't that the truth of it? Our babies are pressed and clean and the parents, uh not so much. :)
    p.s. Thanks so much for answering my question about green cleaners. I DID find a green disinfectant. It's made by Seventh Generation. Yay!

  24. Your carrots look yummy! And your two little sweet peas look so fresh and clean! Funny you mentioned about the scruff while the babies are so well taken care of...here I am, sitting at computer with my bathrobe still on and the baby is crawling around with fresh, clean clothes on and a freshly changed diaper. As soon as he goes down for a nap it's shower time for me!!

    Hugs,

  43. Isn't that the truth? The babies are always clean and well dressed. The parents? Well..... I'm clean, but hair, make up, and clothes have seen better days. My husband would probably say that I'm clean, but wonders if I lost my razor. ha!
