(By the way, for any new readers, I’ve not gone mad – I use this blog as a catalogue of my experiments with growing my own food.) I thought I’d try a few carrots this year, just to see how they went. Though they are interesting shapes, this first lot should feed us nicely for a meal.
There’s still plenty going on in the garden. I’ve more carrots on the go and, as you can see, plenty of weird varieties of cooking radishes and turnips. The broad beans are poking through, and the raspberries are getting to the end of giving fruit. I’ve recently planted some onions (called Troy) and garlic (a huge variety called Chesnok Red, which shames all supermarket varieties) so I shall see how they go.
