I started a carrot farm in my backyard last summer. I wanted more orange in my life. I planted rows after rows of carrot seeds, and months later I started digging out truckloads of carrots. My whole basement was full of carrots. I lived on carrot juice and carrot cake. I wore an organic carrot crown. I started cooking carrots, pickling carrots, and then I opened up a carrot everything-and-anything Etsy shop. I sold handmade carrot cards and made life-sized parrots out of carrots. I painted with carrots and I painted on carrots. I went carrot crazy and was known as the carrot lady.
