Just kidding. Indie the senior citizen rescue dog can have as many of my carrots as she wants. And she may want several.
Indie belongs to Michaelann Velicky, the gardener/farmer in Elkins Park who's turned her 1/3-acre property into a mini-farm. Indie likes to dig up carrots in the garden, and while I was there, she unearthed two. The carrots weren't ripe yet, so her munching sounded like a machine disposing of wood.
Actually, it's just like my carrots. Funny thing, I didn't plant any this year and I don't remember planting them last year. Never had much luck. But I have a bumper crop as I write this. Now if I can just figure out when to pull them up. I don't have an Indie around to dispose of the underripe ones ...
Michaelann yelled at her - sort of. Then she said, "It's OK. I plant extra carrots now."
