Is it time yet?
These are my miracle carrots. The first miracle is they grew. Usually when I try to grow anything from seed, it dies before it becomes more than a sprout! Of course, I have had my dad's help with them.
The second miracle is they are still in the ground. Growing carrots requires patience. I don't have patience. The taller they get the harder it is to leave them in the ground. According to the seed package, they should be ready to pick on August 12th, but that isn't soon enough. I want them now!
These aren't ordinary orange carrots either. They're purple which is my favorite color. I'm dying to see how they turn out. Here is the seed package so you can see what they are supposed to look like...
