the beginning


Last September, I planted multi-colored carrot seeds in a long rectangular planter on my balcony. I then, sadly to say, abandoned them. 

All winter long, they sat - through cold, snow, and winds. Every now and again - I would dig one up, just to see if it had grown. Each time, however, I was disappointed at their snail-like progress. I would frown, re-bury it in the dirt, and find warmth and shelter inside.

Though, this morning, when I dug these little guys up - I must say, I was proud! Together, in a bunch, they are pretty adorable. To look at anyway, I am not yet sure about the eating part.
