      Ha. Check out mine from this morning. Recipe called for two large carrots. Large of course is subjective. They are pictured next to a teaspoon!WP_20150808_012.jpg

            my carrots have been not very impressive - first time ive grown them in containers, and most of them came up like GYOs!!!! I bought some heritage/heirloom carrots, but they haven't done much, just small titchy carrots that are too small to do much with except chuck in a salad.

            nice carrot capney! :dbgrtmb::love30:

            The few carrots I grew this year were good in that I got them before the squirrels and badgers got stuck in. They were a good size but not straight and I got to them before the wildlife.

              I also grow carrots in containers as I get the ol carrot fly in the veg patch. Mine are a mixture of sizes but not very big and some just like GYO has. The taste is well worth the effort.

                After such a long time without rain and today it's bucketing down, I can hear the carrots splitting from the conservatory!

                Cheers, Tony.:sad:

                I've grown flyaway f1 this year and they are stunning not the usual twisted nobly roots I normally get. They are straight as an arrow and delicious (so delicious none have made it home yet thanks to the kids) and at the minute would say they are pretty fly resistant no noticeable damage so far. Will defiantly grow them again next year
