We went out of town week before last to Nepal. When we left, I left a few carrots on the kitchen counter. It was pretty hot and dry before we left (now we're in Monsoon!)... and well, the carrots shriveled to nothing! It's pretty amazing how much they changed! I guess our house is pretty hot :) haha! Here they are next to a new fresh carrot so you can see how much they shrank! Awesome!
