Remember those carrots?

Remember those carrot seeds that we planted on our balcony in the spring? (See Sensorimotor Worship: Gardening.)  Well, there was much rejoicing when we finally harvested the carrots at the end of August!

We had carrots in everything the next few days - in salads, in our snack boxes for school, even our hamster got some fresh carrot!  I think the whole experience drove reality home to us about how much work and patience it would take to grow our own food.  Not only were we thankful for the carrots themselves, but we also had a new sense of thankfulness for the many farmers who grow our food.
