This year my husband decided to experiment with the carrots. He had read about broadcast seeding and wanted to try it out. I was skeptical. I like my little carrots in straight long rows, but I went along with the new plan. It’s always good to try new things I reasoned. If it’s an epic fail, I get to do the victory dance of a smug gardener…well, I wouldn’t have done it in front of him.
It turns out that instead of the smug sagacious dance of a victor, I’ll be having carrot flavored crow sandwiches for a rather long while:)
We harvested half a row yesterday and were rewarded with the above bounty (about 30#). A five gallon bucket, a large stock pot and a few on the side, whew. We have another row and a half to go. I am grateful I have such a big mouth ’cause that’s a mighty large bite o’ crow!
Which side of this equation have you found yourself on lately… crow eater or crow server? I really don’t mind either side in this instance since we are all winners in the great broadcast seeding experiment.
