Yesterday I cleaned half of my vegetable garden and harvested the last of the carrots. Warren and I enjoy the flavor of homegrown carrots. This year I bought a package that had red, white, light orange, and orange carrots. We found the white to be rather tasteless but liked the others better. The red ones were orange when peeled so unless they are young and well scrubbed they were not the fun product I had hoped. Their flavor was good. The light orange ones did not have a very strong carrot flavor so I will stick with regular carrots next year.
Oh, yes I had one very big carrot. It was in a row of normal carrots so I do not know what caused the steroid like growth.
