Still enjoying the school holidays here! I am continuing my Summer clean, and went through the things at the top of my built in wardrobes in my bedroom yesterday. I was surprised. I thought there was more. Turns out the entire top shelf is empty. :D
So out to the garden I went. To potter around. My favourite thing to do. I noticed that the top of a carrot was sticking up out of the ground, and it looked about the right size. So I pulled it up, and this is what I got...
Oh Mother Nature, you have a wicked sense of humour!
It did look like a really nice carrot from the top, but unfortunately there wasn't much to it. We ate it with some other store-bought carrots for dinner as the other ones in the garden aren't ready.
Something in my potato box smelled a little on the nose. I had bought a big 4 kg bag of potatoes 2 weeks ago, and I figured it was at least one of those gone bad. I hadn't even opened the bag!
I tipped the entire bag in the sink and started washing them.
In the drainer to dry, then I patted them completely dry with an old tea-towel.
One of the smelly offenders. Turns out there were three of them. Now I have to use the rest of the bag up fairly quickly. Good thing I have a book full of potato recipes :D
