I’ve been harvesting my small round Carrots (I think the variety is Paris Market) over the last week or so. They have been a great success. I sowed them underneath my Apple espalier in a situation that is part shaded, by my tall Raspberry canes, and also quite dry since it’s right next to the wall.
It was really a shot in the dark since I didn’t know if the Carrots would grow well there. But I figured as they’re only small roots they wouldn’t need as much light or water as regular Carrots.
It paid off. All the Carrots I harvested are full sized and mega tasty. I’m really pleased and will certainly try the same thing next year.
