The carrots we planted in the pop bottle terrarium back in March, were finally ready to be harvested this week.
After, I pulled a premature carrot out, a few weeks ago, we noticed, the carrot next to it filled out, so we thinned the total number of carrots down to five.
The carrot tops grew larger right away, and last night...
...we decided it was time to see the carrots.
They were still pretty short, even for Short 'n Sweets , which according to the package should be about 4'' long.
Ours were about 1 1/2'' long. So, not quite full size. But, their taste was full grown, and for the children, who are use to store bought carrots, that come in a bag, washed, and cut, it was quite a taste sensation.
Though after a taste comparison, they decided they still prefer the bagged carrots. The Man of the House and I, were flabbergasted, and decided we really need to work on feeding them more fresh picked produce, whenever possible.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
