This season hasn’t been great for my carrot patch. It was too hot, and there were too many spells when it didn’t rain and I didn’t have time to water. So my carrots never got big and juicy. Last weekend I decided to pull up whatever little runty carrots that were left and put in some new seeds for fall.
The carrots I pulled were kind of starchy, nothing special. But I knew one customer who’d like them anyway. I just so happen to know someone with a pet rabbit, so I’ve been giving her my carrot thinnings and extra carrot greens throughout the season. So even though these last carrots were a little sub-par for human consumption, the bunny certainly liked them. He took one under a piece of furniture and seemed very concerned that we were going to take it back from him:
It’s a good lesson. If life gives you a bad carrot season, make bunny food.
