Carrots

Carrots are a kind of vegetable that were served at Harry’s first Hogwarts Welcome Feast and at the Christmas dinner at the Burrow in 1996 (PS7, HBP16).

As Fred Weasley was pulling carrots for Christmas dinner in 1996, a garden gnome bit him on the ankle (HBP16).

 

Commentary

Notes

Fred harvested fresh carrots from the Burrow garden for Christmas dinner, but the typical carrot growing season lasts from April to July (source: Royal Horticultural Society). Either this was an error, or magic was involved. -BB
