Funky Carrot - Ode to grandpa J.

When I was young, I took a carrot for show and tell (and my sister's belly button, but that's a different story). Now this was not an ordinary carrot mind you, but one from my grandfather's garden. It had 8 legs - we called it the octopus carrot. Important show and tells remain in your memory forever, you know.

It seems like every year we just happen to get a funky octopus type carrot in our garden. Hmmm, I wonder if it is hereditary? Here's this year's addition to the carrot hall of fame

Wow, that is awesome! Now I am wondering whose belly button it was, and why you would think other kids would find that interesting... of course you are one of us, so that explains itself.
