June-sown Danvers

When you grow your own carrots, you can sometimes find odd shaped, intertwined ones, or even a carrot that is 'anatomically correct" like this little boy. Our carrots did not germinate when planted in May, but the re-sown bunch of Danvers have produced very nice-sized roots. I also think planting later in the season reduced pest problems - notably the carrot rust fly- there doesn't seem to be any wormy carrots so far. I must remember to plant the carrots in June next year to see if we get similar results. There is no better way to eat these than straight out of the dirt, after a rinse, of course!
