Can you use them for firewood? Just a thought! LOL!!! :~)
I'll try that!
Hmm. Weird. I grew carrots from seed one year. Planted them in a square-foot gardening box we built in the backyard. They tasted fine, but apparently my box was too shallow. All the carrots turned left at the bottom.I remember everything from your gardens being divine. Wonder what was up with the carrots this year. Not enough rain, maybe?
I read somewhere that because of the drought this year, certain foods like carrots and onions would be more bitter/pungent and others like fruits and tomatoes would be more sweet.
I'll bet you're right. The heat probably had a lot to do with it. Our onions are REALLY strong.
I don't know that hubby ever green carrots this spring. He has, however, planted them for the fall. I spent a back-breaking hour out there with son2 yesterday weeding dead nettle out of the bed. :P And I couldn't tell the dill from the carrots when they're a mere 8 mm tall. Bummer that yours were so bitter.
