I pulled the last of my spring crop of carrots. These are the big guys – Oxheart. They are very tasty. Round and fat like and orange. They make a very nice “chip” when sliced horizontally. I still have a big bagful of early carrots (Mokum), a more traditionally shaped and sweeter variety, in my fridge. I took out the bagful for a photo next to the newly pulled Oxhearts.
I planted a few more rows of carrots seeds for a fall crop a couple of weeks ago. They sprouted nicely, but I’m afraid I buried most of them while digging the potatoes. Oh well….
