Griffin decided to take an early morning trip to the garden and helped me pull our first carrot. And of course he wanted to feed it to his whale. Then before I could stop him, it went into his mouth. With a "Yuck" and a spit, he threw it back into the garden. I brought it back into the house, washed it up and it was actually very tasty. Couldn't get Maddox to take a bite though. I guess if it isn't bright orange, 2", and in a bowl next to ranch, it's not a carrot.
