In the site logo, the carrot farmer (who I can only assume is Paul) is wearing a winter hat and holding fresh carrots!  I have to ask, Paul, have you developed a winter carrot, or is it really that cold in Missoula in the summer?  I remember frolicking with a girl in the Lolo one summer day, and as I recall it was rather warm ( or maybe just the girl was warm, it was a long time ago).

Ha! good one. 

I thought the hat was to cover up a bad hair cut, or bald spots

They're probably late, autumnal carrots.  He's not wearing a coat, after all.  But then, maybe he's using the hat to *hide* his ears.  I do that sometimes...

That drawing was made about 15 years ago.  I had no idea what I would use it for, but I found a guy that could draw stuff the way I liked.  About five years I scanned in the image, cleaned it up and colored it. 

About six months ago a guy sent me an updated image of the guy with a cowboy hat and a goatee.  Really well done!  But not as goofy.  That guy then helped me make images for the flea control article, the lawn care article and some of my other richsoil stuff.

here we grow winter carrots. Harvested when snow is on the gardens. the winter carrots are 1,5" thick and about a foot long...  huge carrots.
 
I'm not dead! I feel happy! I'd like to go for a walk! I'll even read a tiny ad:
