Deformed carrots

Posted: Yesterday at 15:06

I grow carrots in raised beds with an irrigation system. I too have sometimes had carrots that look like this but not all of them. Maybe it is something to do do with the irrigation/water supply?

Hi Paula, what a beautiful garden you have. Mine has been frazzled buy the high temperatures this summer down here in SW France.

I cut my two euonymus down to almost ground level and they responded well with lots of new growth.

I had the same problem last year on two of my bushes. I cut them right down and this year they have recovered well with plenty of new growth. They are very tough.

What is your weather like?

Self blanching Celery

Hi Valerie54

Self blanching celery needs to be grown close together, usually in a block so that they can blanch, unlike trench celery. I'm not sure how you could achieve this in a pot, but might be interesting to try.

The leaves look like a Circis, did the tree have floweres before the leaves?
