Winter Carrots fill May Gap

Filed under: root veg — Tags: — TopVeg @ 8:05 pm

Winter Carrots are filling the ‘hungry gap’ we have in May, when the winter veg have finished and the new plantings are still immature.  The carrots we planted in early winter are just coming into their own.

The winter carrots taste delicious.  The foliage is still very healthy.

The problem is they are in the way.  The bed is needed to plant some veg for late summer – so we are giving some away.

Our neighbour has an oversupply of spring cabbage, hence we are doing a swap!  Not only are the winter carrots filling the May gap, they are also fostering neighbourly relations!
