Getting those hands dirty~Home grown carrots

Do you garden?
I just love it. Love the smell of the fresh dirt, the newness of growth. It really doesn't matter to me what it is that I'm growing. I just love to see it grow. Well, unless it's weeds, don't really enjoy those so much.

What's even better is when you get to harvest, To reap the rewards for all the hard work that you've put into the garden.
It's just a feeling of satisfaction like no other. You know that feeling, don't you? If you garden, you know what I'm talking about.
It all starts with the tiny seeds...
and then you get this.

What's hiding under all those green tops, you ask..
well, just look at these babies!

 Lovely, perfectly sweet little carrots.

Can't get much fresher than harvesting your own veggies. Pick it...wash it...then straight into a yummy, oh so fresh coleslaw for dinner. It just doesn't get any better than that!

What have you been growing lately? We have lots of peas, corn, lettuce and a few peppers at the moment. Plus lots of carrots! With the cooler temps that we've had over the last couple of weeks, I haven't even set out tomato plants yet. Though, I'm sure looking forward to some fried green tomatoes when the time comes. I can just make a meal out of those.
What is your favorite veggie to grow??

Thanks so much for stopping by
I appreciate each and every visit!

From the Heart,


  1. It must be nice to be able to grow your vegetables. These carrots look really good.


  2. How great it is to have a great garden...The deer prevent me from planting veggies...The carrots looks so wonderful!

  3. Amazing! I'm in the city with not enough space to have a vegetable garden - but it must be an amazing feeling to grow your own food!

  4. wonderful veggies. We do garden, we have three raised garden beds. I love picking straight from the garden and then right to the table. Bliss. Thank you for joining me at Katherines Corner xo

  5. love fresh just can't beat the flavor

  6. Those carrots look delish! I grew up on a farm and have been away from it for so long. This year I decided to try my hand at a little gardening. So far, I have lost my oregano and cukes...waah! Lol...we live and learn right?
    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. Those carrots look so pretty and they must taste delicious! I tried to grow some vegetables long time ago, but I didn't have a good experience :( I got to give it a new try!

  8. Love carrots, we garden but have to fight the critters from mowing the growth down like lawnmowers! But they leave the corn and yellow squash alone for some reason. Now peas? they love 'em.
