The Carrots the supermarket rejected

We saw carrots on the road and followed the trail and ended up here. These are from the carrot farmer. To every 8 truck loads of carrots that go to the supermarket. One truck load is full of so called rejects (they don't look like a suitable carrot to sell). These particular rejects are for this farmers cows to eat. That conjours up all sorts of images, orange milk, black and orange cows and cows with great night time vision. I met  a girl once who ate so many carrots that the skin on her hands and face were very orange

The druck driver gave us a bag and we made carrot cake.

How bizarre, hard to comprehend the volume of waste that must be generated. At least the cows eat well I guess. One of our neighbours is a banana farmer, he gives box loads of bananas to the farm next door to feed to pigs. These bananas have been judged too small or curvy? What happenned to taste and flavour?
Now you've got me started Candice.
