Why would anyone purposely plant midget vegetables? I wish I had asked myself that before I planted “Danvers HALF LONG” carrots. What was I thinking? Now I’ve got no right to complain about my 2009 Round 1 Carrot Harvest 10.2 oz (minus tops and tap root).
Next go round I’ll look for a variety with a name like Giant, Mamoth, Big Daddy, Jumbo, Collosal, Massive, Huge. It’s just cruel to have a carrot top that’s 18 inches tall and a one-inch carrot.
Well, the good news is the light bulb turned on (although so, so late) about choosing a large variety of carrot and I’ve got composting materials.
13 strawberries today. There may be just a few more on the plants now. I’m making, depending on how well it sets up, jelly (or) jam (or) fruit spread with these. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed these strawberries via Free Cycle plants. The purchased ones have got a lot of catching up to do.
