      It was the first one out the pot. It felt really big when I felt it at the top. But when I pulled it...

        My twisted carrots made for a lovely dinner. Quick question - a few carrots that I pulled had a greenness to the top of them. Is it like potatoes and I should chuck them or can I just cut off the green bits?

        Got some rainbow & samurai carrots to harvest in two weeks time. Cant wait to try them.

        The green tops are caused by exposure to the sun. The tops have popped out the ground. Cut them off and eat the rest.

            Very impressive! I am excited to see how mine come out, this may be setting the bar slightly too high though!
