Grow fun food! did you know that the “normal” color of a carrot is NOT the orange we all think of when some one says carrot! In the 12th century and also the 11th century there is mention of the red and yellow carrot. The “normal”color of orange isn’t mentioned till the 17th century in Netherlands to celebrate the ruling class and the national flag of the Netherlands.

So break the “norm” and grow some multi-colored rainbow carrots and surprise your kids with fun carrots to eat! And make them sweeter where you can “sneak” in the healthy carrots with our Brown Sugar Glazed Carrot recipe
