I have a confession to make. I never thinned my carrot patch. Granted, I didn’t think that I had any carrots growing for the longest time. So I finally got around to thinning out a few, and while munching on the thinnings I had the bright idea to see if I had any big carrots. I pulled one and my eyes about bugged out! HOLY COW, I have a real carrot. This is a first for me as I have never grown carrots before.
I also had to pull a beet so I could look at it better. Sometimes you just have to be a little crazy and do something like that.
Tonight I planted kohlrabi, rutabaga, and broccoli for my winter garden. Hopefully I can get the seeds to sprout. I plan on taking over the potato bed that got decimated by blight and planting some more winter garden stuff there.
