    Butternut Squash

    A mixture of squash and carrots works well in soup. It brings out the orange colour. Marco Pierre White uses carrot juice as the liquid. Pure carrot juice is hard to find.:snorky:G.

    Best soil for carrots

    Although we no longer bother to grow carrots we always got good crops with no problem. We did nothing special, just shoved them in the ground and left them to do their own thing. :noidea:
