September 11, 2009 – Carrot Harvest

It’s time, er, maybe too late, in some cases, to harvest carrots.

The short, stubby carrots are an example of planting a variety suitable to soil conditions.┬á One of the gardens has very hard, clayey soil and that results in planting a variety that is short and fat to ease getting them out of the ground. To try to change this we tried planting tillage radishes in part of it to break it down some, added lots of compost this fall – so we’ll see if it is better next year.
