Harvesting Dangers

If you plan on harvesting any plants today, or indeed have hopes of growing and harvesting your own plants next year, beware…

Let this blog be a warning to you all… Your veggies/fruit may turn on you!!

When faced with danger, carrots can become very aggressive…



Not content with attacking a fellow carrot, it moves on to larger prey…



Panic sets in…



And it lunges!



Direct hit! Haaaaaalp



Ha! Not so big and clever now are you???!



Oh, and not forgetting the Beans, don’t worry about those though… But I would watch out for those tops and tails flying around!

What great imagination for a post Liz - I didn't know about "The Secret Life of Carrots" but I do now!

Thanks for making me smile :D

Clearly you have an artistic temperament to write such a post and produce such lovely photos of flowers and funny carrots too.

Tricia - You see, I'm glad to have opened your eyes to the dark secrets that carrots hold! You can never be too careful...

Liz said...

Jo - Thanks! it actually started out quite innocent, until Pete decided to pick up the 'unique' carrot!

I had started out attempting to do a rather mundane post about our carrots :)

Liz said...

Ann - heehee, you never know what's out there!

Liz said...

Cheryl - I know! Beware or they may fly at you face-hugger or monthy python style! :D

Liz said...

Emma - Thanks! It's just a shame the freaky carrot wasn't actually edible, as it had grown strangely inside and was rock hard to cut through!
