And how big are your carrots?



Each of these babies is longer than my forearm and weighs more than a pound.

They're going in a tsimes just as soon as I can get them out of the little man's hands. He is using them as musical instruments: saxophone, guitar, xylophone. A regular-size carrot is a flute and I'm instructed to play it. We're doing his new favorite song, "Waltzing Matilda." Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda, you'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me...

Ah, who does not cherish the memory of playing Waltzing Matilda in an all-carrot orchestra as the golden sunset brings in the holiday? And those deep, resonant base notes that only a one-pound carrot can produce?
