My wife tried an experiment with carrots. She planted seeds in flats in the greenhouse, then transplanted them to the garden. The transplant seems to have made them go crazy; they have multiple roots, some of which are curved.


Not to ask too dump a question, but do the taste good?

I asked her how they tasted and she said, "You should know, you've been eating them for dinner all week." I thought the carrots were very good so I guess the shape doesn't matter once you've cut them into segments.


When seeing garden fresh vegi first hand, they are not
all perfect, like in the stores. I presume the ugly
ones are sent to food processors (soup, frozen vegies,

And hey, I don't care. The ugly ones from my garden
taste 100 times better than the store.

I still believe the reason why folks don't eat vegi's
is that the taste like crap (from the store). Does
not help if they ever had kale or arugula forced on them.

Arugula. YUK! Tastes like stale radishes with a
persistent aftertaste of fart.YUK! YUK! YUK!

Give some of those ugly carrots!
