The great thing about carrots is that you can leave them in the ground until you need them. Although as you can see from the photo above, they can become monsters!
But with spring planting underway, we just needed the space, so the carrots had to go! Out they come in one big harvest. A few strange looking ones, or ones that split, but the majority are glorious. (They were all planted in autumn, and were in the ground over winter.)
We’ll give some to the neighbours, cook up carrot cake, and store the rest in the fridge.
