Garden Humor: Life with Boys

With the heat wave fully upon us and the carrots mostly finished, I took my two boys out to pull out the rest of the carrots.  They said they wanted to come.  After about 3 minutes, they were wilting and whining from the heat and ran back indoors to the A/C.  Left to my own gardening, I harvested another 1/3 of the carrots (about 25) from the garden. 

Now any Mom of boys knows that they have a one-track mind from the age of 3 or 4 to teen years (and maybe beyond!).  That topic is potty humor.  If you have boys you know the uphill battle of trying to hush the constant laughter associated with anything to do with butts or flatulence.  If you're unfamiliar, just think Beavis & Butthead ("she said 'butt', hehehehe").  So it should not have come as a surprise when I showed the kids this misshapen carrot, which I thought looked like a pair of legs.  They of course, saw a butt!  I don't think anyone will be eating that carrot now.
