“Sorry mam but you have to buy all those Carrots.” Said the Shop Assistant.
When they got home her mum unpacked all the Carrots and moaned.”Now we have to have Carrot’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!
All About Carrots
Carrots are a type of root vegetable. They are high in nutrients and are essential for a balanced diet. They are also a one in a five day food.
Carrots are orange and the bottom of the carrot (taproot) is most commonly eaten, although the greens are sometimes eaten. Carrot seeds were first discovered in Switzerland dating back to 2000–3000 BC.
Carrots can be stored for several months in the refrigerator or over winter in a moist, cool place. For long term storage, unwashed carrots can be placed in a bucket between layers of sand, a 50/50 mix of sand and wood shavings, or in soil. A temperature range of 32 to 40 °F (0 to 5 °C) is best

Carrots are big like boomeranys and orange like oranges.I love the crunchy carrots because they are delicious.They stamp and clap in our tummies but we make a might clap so that it goes in our mouth.It give us good eyesight n see,eye catching and attractive.unflexible and stiff carrot are long like bananas.
Carrots-Orange,like butternut squash, however ,rock hard.These long thin sticks are nutritious and also they contain vitamin C. Unsurprisingly,they smell like a freshly cut bowl of succulent vegetables and the tantalising taste is a cut above the rest !The amazing taste tickles your tongue at the first second you put it in your gaping mouth till the moment you digest it.Carrots are atomic tangerine coloured pencils that grow in the ground but don’t produce led.Personally,they are my favourite vegetable no matter if its cooked or not.The only question on my lips though is :Will you try it?
