One of my husband’s co-workers grows carrots so I thought they were worth a shot. I let E plant them so out of the countless seeds that went into the ground we had maybe 15 little carrots pop up and we had to weed out a few to give the remaining ones room to grow. I wasn’t sure when they’d be ready but one day (in mid June) I saw a little bit of orange peeking out and thought I’d pick them before it became too hot.
They were crispy and tasty and just a lot of fun. I think we will try radishes as well next year. I believe so many didn’t grow because we didn’t plant them in shallow enough holes so I need to take a ruler outside with me at planting time because I just don’t have very good spacial skills.
I think they’re so cute, I love the tall green tops. I fried the carrots sliced up in a wild rice and cabbage stir fry so they got a little lost but it was fun to know we had grown them.
