The carrots seem to be growing good. William pulled one out of the ground the other day to eat and I just had to laugh because when he tried it, he said it was terrible. I told him that we have to wait until after the first frost to pick the carrots and he said that he hoped that would help because they sure were bad tasting now. I planted the same kind that I did last year and those were excellent (picked after two frosts) and they were just the right amount of sweetness.
The strawberries have really gotten thick this year. It has been good to see them flourish and spread out to cover the entire bed. Last couple seasons they didn't get thick like this at all.
