There’s some beautiful Autumn colour in the garden at the moment, and it’s not just in the trees. Our carrots are looking good enough to eat!
A lush green top is a good indication that your carrots are ready for the picking. Gently brush away the dirt at the top of the carrot – depending on the type, the diameter should be between 2.5-3cm.
Carefully slide downwards into the dirt along the length of the carrot with your finger. If it’s too short, leave the carrot for about a week, then check again.
Ours are looking pretty good and because I’m in a baking mood, I’m thinking carrot muffins!
