Day 183/366


I can grow carrots.

I thinned out my carrot rows today.
I've never grown carrots before.
The man at the local markets told me that carrots will grow in sand.
So I purchased some seed from him.
I think he's correct you know.
This very immature carrot even tasted heavenly.
My success may warrant a second garden bed of carrots.

  2. I bet it was lovely and sweet. I was very interested by the plate it rests on, that looks beautiful.

    1. Kath, the plate probably deserves its own post (as one of a pair)...one day...
      And I can't wait for the carrots to be ready for harvest.

    1. Sounds like you've grown your own before Robyn! This is my first attempt.

  4. Well done sweet pea, I hope it tasted good! We have not had any luck with carrots, our few attempts have resulted in weirdly coloured produce that tasted a lot like soap :)
