I was out picking the peas this morning when I had the strong overwhelming desire to pick one of the carrots that I have been waiting for patiently. I know that everyone else on the east coast has planted and already pulled their spring carrots but I am on the slow side. Not having planted carrots in previous years and failing with the first attempts, I came across Dan's blog entry about how he was planting them. He in turn got the idea from Granny's directions. So, some where in the first week of May, I decided to give it a go. I think for my zone, I should have done this in early April and I would have had them pulled by now.
I just had to take a peak, and was I surprised to actually see a pretty straight, good looking beginning of what is going to be a carrot.
It tasted good too.
