Sowing seeds pays off

These carrots were a pleasant surprise. They'd been chugging along in the backyard, doing their thing, and it was only on a rainy evening when I was getting ready to make soup and kicking myself for forgetting to buy carrots that I thought it might be time to check their progress.

That large one was seriously huge! They're also not a bad metaphor for what's been going on in my life and taking me away from the blogosphere: finally, after years of study, interning, volunteering and freelancing, I've got a paid full-time job as a journalist. I'm really enjoying it, and it's nice to have some stability and routine in my life.


  1. Hey, congrats on the fulltime possie. Where? Which masthead? Carrots look good. I was super pleased with my own crop last year. The garden's going to seed, quite literally, because my new job is sucking up a lot of time.

  2. Hola!
    Love to two middle carrots - they're cuddling!
