Carrots are really fun

We planted several kinds of carrots this year. 

What's fun about carrots of different colors is you never know
what you will pull up for a meal. 
I went out last night and pulled two big beautiful carrots.  

They tasted wonderful. 
Can't wait to pull one of the purple carrots. 
If only I had more space I'd plant more carrots. 
They are hard to keep wet enough to sprout in this hot weather, but maybe in a few days I'll pop some more carrots seeds into some of the empty spaces.  

OK time for a carrot report.  Who has pulled carrots and what did you get?

White Satin and something I had left over from last years seeds

We harvested one "L" shaped purple carrot the other day (they hit the bottom of the box and since it's got a barrier, they just turn and keep growing sideways). :)

We've had a tough year with carrots this year. Low percentage of seeds planted sprouted, and the mega-army of slugs this year kept nipping off the seedlings as they came out of the ground. We still have a decent amount growing though.
