We harvest carrots

Conventional gardening wisdom says that one should sow carrots in the spring, in freely-drained, sandy soil. One can then harvest them from late summer onwards.

We don’t think conventional gardening wisdom is very clever.

We sowed some carrots at the beginning of September in poorly drained heavy clay, and we’re harvesting these lovely straight carrots in April.
