It has taken all these years of working on the allotment and finally I managed to grow some half decent carrots.
My Grandad was a great gardener but he never grew them, he always said that he isn’t going to waste time – his soil was too full of stones and they always failed. I had a different problem – the dreaded carrot fly. But this year I chose some new (for me at least) seeds, called Flakkee.
And this is the first little bunch.
