last year's attempt at carrots, I swore I was done growing carrots.
Then over the winter, I read The Winter Harvest Handbook, by Eliot Coleman and realized that carrots are a cool weather veg. As in COOL weather. Not summer.
So I picked up some mixed-color carrot seed from Rural King or Menard's or somewhere like that and sowed a row in the hoop house on Valentine's Day.
And look what I grew! I harvested early this month and was pleasantly surprised at the size of some of them.
I noticed that the white ones were tiny and not very tasty - but those purple ones! Mmmm.
I'll be planting another row of carrots this fall for overwintering.
