The carrots that started out their lives sprouting under a piece of plywood came of age. Of course there were a few that looked like fat six-legged orange snowmen, but I’m very pleased with the harvest. About 35 lbs. worth; more than we have room to store. The orange snowmen didn’t make the cut, but they’ll go to a friend’s horses.



After pulling the carrot crop, I fired up the chicken tiller in that spot. Awesome.


Making evening rounds, tucking tomato vines into place inside their cages, I felt something soft.


I gave it a fighting chance in the chicken pen. It lost.

  1. Our carrots are still small. I think you’re method of starting them works. The parsnips though are really healthy. Have you ever planted a tomatillo? I tried one this year and it’s well over five feet tall and still growing … everything but fruit!

    • Mike, I’ve never planted parsnips, but I did try tomatillos one year. Didn’t really know what to do with them though. Hopefully they still have time to bear for you.


    • Thanks! I might have waited just a hair too long, because some of the carrots were split lengthwise, and some were just bigger than a human mouth could enjoy. It’s probably the best idea to harvest like you do, a few at a time as you go.

  2. Love it! No carrot porn? We always had some that looked a bit, ahem, R-rated. Danvers grows well here and they are the sweetest, tastiest carrots I’ve ever put into my mouth. RIP, Little Squishy.
