Tofu Tuesday: Tiny White Carrot

At the start of February, we planted a row of purple carrots and a row of white carrots.

Now, five months on, still no adult sized carrots. The purple carrots turned out orange, round and the size of a grape. The white carrots did turn out white, but resemble pencil stubs. I could eat eat both rows for a snack.

The carrots have been in the ground for twice the amount of time it should take to grow carrots. I would consider this a complete failure except for the fact they happen to be the perfect size snack for a rabbit.

    • Hi Alice, from what I’ve gathered, it could be the opposite. Good soil and lots of water means the green tops grow, the roots suffer. Bad soil and less water means that the roots grow deep searching for nutrients and water. Will test out this theory in the next batch. Isn’t it funny what seems logical might not always be the solution?

      • learned something new today! that’s not at all intuitive. lol. :3 i was thinking of above-ground crops, like my dad’s thai chili peppers. they grow small with very concentrated flavor (yum!) because he purposefully starves the plant of water. the world is so different underground…. haha
