dusk

As I sit here in the evening light of our living room the kids are up past bedtime. Gita (7), Lil (4), and Seo (2) are all playing down by the garden together, their giggles rising up from behind the bushes. I love this time of day with the peepers and whip-poor-wills and the little ones' berry stained faces.  Lightning bugs and the sound of our fan running...
Our first successful attempt at growing carrots!

Great to see new carrots. Loved pulling then from the garden - washing them under the garden hose and eating them.

Yes Lucy! that is just what we did with the kids. I loved seeing them eating them with the long green tops still attached! mmmmmmm

Congrats these look wonderful! I know how this feels because we grew some carrots last year. Their taste fresh out of the garden is so incredibly sweet and flavorful compared to store bought.
