carrot shortage?
« on: July 15, 2018, 21:27 »
Just read in the paper that there's likely to be a severe shortage of carrots this year due to the weather. Not in our house there isn't   :D

Been eating our own for about 6 weeks and still have ten buckets of them growing which should give enough for about 60-80 meals. It's been hard work but I've managed to keep most of the veggies watered during this dry spell.

I have a nice little crop coming along- I could probably harvest some now to be honest.  However one of my crop has decided to flower in its first year.  I can only put this down to the weather.

Hi. I set 3 lots of seeds, all from the same packet, in identical soil & area but
only 1 setting have grown but even Monty Don showed the other week that all
but 7 of his carrots from a quite big seed bed had failed so I was a bit happier
in a way that it's not just me.
