gone to seed







Noticed Yesterday that a couple of my long Carrots were going to seed. I am not sure why, they were an experiment variety called Purple Haze I can only think that the bed is overcrowded even though the spacings are 6" apart the rest seem OK. I had a furtle around the stumps while the Enviromesh was off and they seem to be around 1 1/2 " across already so I should get a good set of them anyway.The rest of my 80z onions have now been harvested and are drying on the lounge windowsill they all weigh slightly over 8oz but smithy reckons that they will loose weight as they ripen so we will see what happens the one in the middle is a vase not an onion I will be moving this in due course to make room for more Onions

  1. Onions look good Paul. When the necks dry off and you've tied them and cropped back to just above the raffia they will weigh under 8oz.

    As for the carrot going to seed......I've never experienced that so it must be the silly hot weather we're having. Judging by the length they've been growing quite a while so they must have gone through the coldish Spring also. Again....just one of those things. Hopefully the rest will be fine.

    If you've never grown Purple Haze before you're in for a treat....it tastes superb.
