Pictures of the Week

On Monday we harvested our winter carrots for the first time.  The children had been anticipating this moment all winter long and were not disappointed.  Each carrot came out differently that the one before it.  Some were long, some short.  Some had two "legs" or a corkscrew shape.  All of them were sweet and delicious!
