Picked these carrots today.
I wouldn't normally leave carrots in the ground over winter, but these were sown late in August - too late - so they weren't worth digging up in the autumn. Then we had this peculiarly wet, but warmer than usual, winter. So when I was at the plot to pick kale and dig up Jerusalem artechokes (and weed the onion patch) I thought I would see what there was under the ground beneath the net.
To give a sense of scale:
They taste really sweet.
And here for the record are the unwashed Jerusalem artechokes. A great boon at this time of year when soup is the order of the day.
