Big Carrots

These giant carrots are located at a food bank a little north of Ann Arbor. Great place to stop for a photo op!

Giant Carrots

Outside of the Food Gatherers warehouse building, off Dhu Varren Road on Carrot Way, are 8 very large carrots (think people-sized) that were, according to a blog post, created in 2003 by a man who designs miniature golf courses. An unexpected sight when simply passing by own the road.

Looks like eight were originally arrayed near the building entrance, more recently six are closer to the road and next to a vegetable field (carrots?).
