So, we tried to grow a lot of our own vegetables this year but sadly, while we were on holiday, there was a freak hailstorm and almost everything died. One of the things that survived was the small pot of Chatenay carrots. We didn’t think much would happen with them but we’ve continued to water them every night just in case.

Today, while I was outside willing the barbecue coals to turn ashy I noticed a little carrot head poking out. I thought I’d give it a little tug and just see if maybe something exciting might have happened underneath the soil. Lo and behold a perfectly formed baby carrot appeared in my hand. I tugged on a few more and they’re all ready! We now have six (don’t laugh) perfectly formed Chatenany carrots ready to eat. How exciting!

P.S. That’s my hand you can vaguely see in the picture, I spent about five minutes running around the garden holding my tiny bunch of carrots shouting “Look! They’re ready! We grew something! And Stephen took my picture 🙂

    They look great! Carrots are the only things we’ve really grown sucessfully this year. They were tiny, but delicious.

    They look very good. And will taste even better knowing you’ve grown them.

    I cant wait to have a garden so I can try my hand at some vegetables, though I dont have very green fingers!
