These unique carrots were grown in a backyard veggie patch by eight-year-old Lenny. 'Why would you buy boring straight carrots when you can grow funny carrots like this!' he proclaimed while harvesting them. There was also a lot of giggling. Have you been harvesting any interesting veggies from your garden? #funnycarrotfriday
Don't forget our new course - Getting Started: An Online course for Educators - is now open to the public! You can learn the basics of setting up and running a kitchen garden program in time for the start of the 2017 school year. AND you can do it all without having to leave the comforts of your house or office. You could even complete it by the pool if you are enjoying a summer holiday :)
