Horse Feed: morning inspiration

This kind of thing is good for the soul. These bright orange carrots looked almost unnatural--but thanks to knowing exactly which local farm they were uprooted from, I know they're as natural as they come.

Seeing this before you start your day is inspiring. It gave me a burgeoning desire to move out to the country, and in my early-morning daydream, I uprooted carrots before the sun came up and plucked apples out of trees as the rooster began to crow.

So these guys went into the juicer for our breakfast; I'm saving the shreds for a carrot-apple cake, hoping I can change Ryan's mind about vegetables being baked into dessert. :) I think I've got some secret weapons up my sleeve to impress him...fingers crossed.
