I was wondering if the carrots in the ground were anywhere near as impressive as the foliage looks. This morning I dug up a couple to see if they were and was delighted to find that these certainly are.
The finger-thick one is the variety Bambino and the other a Chantenay Red Cored. Both are about 5 in/ 12.5 cm long. If a few more look and taste as good as these I’ll be well pleased.
A nasturtium has self-seeded and grown in front of the compost heap and has the largest leaves I’ve ever seen on any of these plants. The biggest leaf is around 8 in/20 cm across. It didn’t show any sign of flowering until this week when a couple of yellow flowers appeared.
Out on the plot this mound of nasturtiums Tip Top Mahogany showed no sign of any flowers until this week when one appeared with more on the way.
I really this dark velvet red colour with a glowing yellow centre.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
