When I visited Mum and Dad a few months ago I convinced Mum to plant carrots. Heirloom carrots, of multiple colours. They grew a lot quicker than mine, and my folks have enjoyed red, orange and white carrots for sometime. That was until I came home. With a tendency to eat salad with every meal I went through those carrots (and the holy cos lettuce) until one day ... ooops ... there were none left! I managed to find one hidden in the ground with only a small amount of leaves left on it (hidden carrot) but that was it. They tasted absolutely delicious!
Now to try and convince Mum to grow some more. I've already promised to bring back some bush bean seeds next time I am here. But more carrots, now that would be lovely!
