Carrots are so good for you. Few years ago i was obsessed with growing my own carrots on our backyard. They were so juicy and sweet, not sure why i don’t plant them anymore. Probably because we leave the country for travels every summer, and i have nobody who would take care of my plants while i am overseas.
