Now those are ‘baby’ carrots

I went down to the garden this morning to rescue a couple of garlic bulbs I had planted the previous Fall.  My dad was going to come over soon and rototiller the garden where they were planted.  After I dug up the garlic (which look more like green onions due to being so young) I remembered the carrot seeds I planted last October then promptly forgot about.  Further investigation reveled tiny green sprouts among the weeds.  A lot of careful weeding later, I had two rows of baby carrot greens.  Some thinning needed to be done (I hate thinning.  It reminds me of plant murder.) so I started pulling up the plants that were bunched together.  What do ya know, there were little tiny carrots developing at the bottoms of the greens.  I think these are the very definition of ‘baby carrots’.  🙂
