Saturday was such a good day I got a few jobs done around the garden, and a wee bit of tidying done.
One of the jobs was harvesting some of these St Valery variety carrots we sowed broadcast back in April, the joy of sowing broadcast is that as they grow you can thin them as they grow (giving some tasty wee carrots) and by them growing densely you get far less weeds, and when you harvest them you get a nice assortment of sizes, as can be seen here in the picture.
