Cute Carrots

I finally got some decent size carrots! I have been waiting patiently to pull out my Short 'n Sweet carrots, as the stalks on most of them are over two feet tall. However, the few that I have pulled recently were less than 1 inch in diameter. Last night I decided to try again and low and behold, I pulled out a winner! It was about 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter and close to the 5-6 inch mark in length. I then pulled out two more that were not quite as big, but still tasty!

I sadly pulled out my cucumbers and am seeing the last of the sugar snap peas. I still have a large amount of sweet 100s that are forming, but something keeps taking huge bites out of my larger (Jet Star & Early Girl) tomatoes. I was able to grab only one yesterday. The romaine lettuce is starting to bolt, so I may not be able to harvest any more.
