Carrots – Well they look like carrots
The first of my carrots are finally here….Hmmmm
I sowed some nantes on the 6th April and I’ve been keeping a close eye on these over the last week. Surely they are ready by now (either that or it’s another fail to add to the list) so this morning I took the plunge and decided to pick a few.
I went with what I thought were the 3 largest ones and the disappointment on my face would have been obvious. Here they are:
OK the picture doesn’t really show off what I mean but they are a lot smaller than I imagined them to be. The largest one (on top) is only 4.5″ long and none of them are as thick as I expected them to be.
Maybe this is how they should look I really don’t know and will need to spend time looking on the net but having had a quick look the majority don’t look like these (ok a few do but were they wrong as well or am I being to self critical?)
I have left the rest in and plan to leave them for a while longer, mainly as they look smaller but also to see if I can improve on these.
Having said that don’t get me wrong they look healthy and are most definitely edible which for my first attempt is great but I guess I was just hoping for so much more, Let’s see what the rest bring and of course I do have the Amsterdam Forcing I sowed a few weeks backs as well.
I will do another update (wow maybe 3 in 1 day) on the rest of whats going on but if not maybe I’ll get that done tomorrow as I’m sure you all can’t wait to hear about what else has gone wrong (teaser alert )
