I’ve got a carrot!

04 October 2019

One of the joys of gardening with the children from the preschool is seeing their delight in what they’ve grown. We lifted some of the carrots a couple of days ago (one adult foot on one side of the fork, one child’s foot on the other, push down and pull back – they got the hang of it very quickly). And then, dive in and retrieve the carrot and hold it up in delight – no worrying about how small they are (it’s been a very dry summer, and we need to get a lot more goodness into that earth before trying to take another crop off it). “I’ve got a carrot, Wow!”

A good reminder to celebrate what we’ve grown, rather than hankering after better crops.
