Despite spending time looking for other places to live, we still had a small winter garden this year consisting of lots of Jerico lettuce, snap beans, green onions (Texas Bunching) and carrots. Most of the carrots I grew this year were Purple Dragon. We have been enjoying those a lot. However, there were some of my purple Turkish, including this small one, that ended up on our dinner plates.

Yum! Those carrots look delicious! Now that's a variety I have never seen!ReplyDelete
Thanks! My parents were planning on traveling to Turkey and I asked them to pick some up while they were there. I was so grateful they found these! (=Delete
Woah, awesome carrot! We are going to grow some black carrots for the first time this year, which will be a lot of fun. I hope they grow as well as yours!ReplyDelete
Me too! (=Delete
