WOO HOO, I am SO excited!!

Post  dixie on 10/26/2010, 6:02 pm

After 40+ years of gardening my first carrots EVAH! I didn't realize that some were this big, but they are really tender & sweet. I have no idea why some are misshapen since they are in MM.

They are from Baker Creek Rare Seeds, their description:
Yellow: Jaune Obtuse du Doubs: A delicious, bright lemon-yellow carrot that comes from France. Mentioned in 1894, it was originally used as a stock carrot for livestock. This big, thick yellow carrot has been winning over chefs and gardeners, for it has a fine, sweet taste that is hard to duplicate in modern carrots.

Orange: Muscade: A delicious North African carrot that produces blocky, 7" orange roots that have exceptional flavor and a crisp, crunchy texture. They hold up well at market, and are late bolting. Rare and almost impossible to find!

Beautiful carrots, Dixie! I had my first time ever success this year with seeds from Territorial Seeds - Nantes. Past years I have only had tops, little or no roots.

But they just did not compare to yours! Thanks for the info on yours. I'm going to check them out.

Wow, what a terrific harvest.
I'm glad you grew some this year. I love the flavor of fresh-from-the-garden carrots. Better than store-bought, for sure.

Planting time?

Post  ander217 on 10/28/2010, 8:04 am

Your carrots look great, Dixie. When did you plant them?

I had tried growing carrots before but they never did well in our clay loam soil. I finally grew beautiful carrots this year in MM, but it seemed to take forever for them to get there.

Ander, I planted the carrots sometime in June, probably latter part. I put them in when I pulled the corn stalks. They really do take a long time to mature, but were well worth the wait.
