Beardy Carrot

The life and times of a man who thinks he is a carrot


Ask me anything  
While I didn’t have any specific plans for this little green pot at the time I got it, I pretty much had to relinquish it to my mom when I realized that one of her newly-acquired miniature plants was a perfect fit.

Hello… god? I know I don’t pray to you often… mostly because I don’t believe in things like ghosts or gods or goblins …but thanks all the same. Just… Thanks.

THAT IS NOT WHAT AN EBOOK IS

SQUIRRELS!

My older sister and her husband have become known in the area for their squirrel rehabilitation, so when little babby squirrels are orphaned (squirrels have quite a few predators in central Florida), they eventually end up with my sister.

Their names are Rousey (after MMA fighter Ronda Rousey) and Marty McBotfly. You, ah… You don’t want to know where he got that name. Be glad that the picture is of his good side.

This poor little toad, try as she might, couldn’t get back out of this (basin-style) fish pond. Here’s hoping she learned a lesson about deep holes.

I love the farmers’ market.

I’m so clever.

Blumarinds?

Blumarinds?

A comparison of braeburn apple juice (left) to red delicious apple juice (right).

You may notice that the photo on the left seems lighter than the one on the right; this is because it was taken with the overhead light on, while the other had just the camera flash. Despite this difference, the two are as close to their actual colors as I could get them. As you can see, the braeburn juice is very light in color, and translucent. The red delicious, meanwhile, is dark and completely opaque.

I dunno, I just thought it was neat. Apple science!
