The notion that fresh carrots from the garden are always sweet and tender isn't my experience. But these Thumbelina carrots (from Renee's Garden seeds), harvested today, are delightful in appearance and pretty tasty, too. (Uh, but not exactly like those baby carrots pre-packaged in the grocery store, either).

It's behind other lavenders in the neighborhood, but is robust, and the first bumblebees are enjoying the nectar from its flowers.
