I was drawn to this colourful punnet of rainbow mixed carrots and
planted them in my vegetable garden
I checked on them a few times but they didn't seem to be growing very big so
after 6 months I pulled them out
They turned out to be disappointment size - very small and
all bent and squished into themselves
I washed and peeled them chopped them up and put them into a baking tray with
olive oil, ground sea salt cracked pepper and dried mixed herbs
I wish I had some photos of them cooked but they were devoured with my Sunday roast beef and vegetables before I had the chance - sorry!
The colours were fun but they did taste a bit woody. When you can get a 1kg bag for under $1 and I had to wait for this bunch for over 6 months it's not really worth it and I wouldn't grow carrots again.
Have you waited ages to grow something and then been disappointed ?
