Mutant Carrot

This from the garden. The one on top was a little harder to pull up than normal.

Hmmm.   At least it's organic.

I think this is just from having too many nutrients in the soil, which can make carrots excessively hairy or branch out. But it’s still odd. These are about twice as big as the seed packet said that they’d get. (That’s a quarter next to them. The packet said 4″)

And they’re very good. Especially when grilled. The cherry tomatoes are just starting to get ripe. I’ve got one bigger tomato starting to get there. Just in time for my vacation.

But there are a lot of tomatoes out there. And half of them I didn’t even plant. They came up on their own from last years fallen fruit.
