When she was young

Little Harriet Hogmanny-Hog-Mahomm grew up on a vegetable farm. Her one mom was a very famous lettuce grower. Her other mom was a very famous potato grower. From an early age, Harriet was interested in carrots.

She had some successes in early years, but had the continued problem of “pop-out”. As you well know, “pop-out” happens when you have a particularly large vegetable that pops out of the ground as you’re watering it, and traps you on top.

“Pop-out” is ok with potatoes or pumpkins, because if you’re trapped atop a huge one, you can just slide off the sides. But carrots are much taller vegetables, and the edges can be like a cliff. Harriet solved the problem by always carrying a long rope in her backpack when watering.

Harriet found vegetable language classes so easy that during them she would create new vegetables through a HEMF (hybrid-extricatory-modification-fusion) process. You might not know it, but it was she who invented the caulicumber, the pumptato and the asparaflower.

Mrs. Hogmanny-Hog-Mahomm is married to Jonwort Hogmanny-Hog-Mahomm, the famous carrot artist. His paintings (mainly of carrot 27b) hang all over their home, and are in collections of the rich and famous worldwide. There is even one at the Sniffsonian, believed to be worth over 100 million dollars.

Every year Harriet and Jonwort attend the GIVSF (Global International Vegetable Schmooze Fest) where they are usually guests of honor.
