As usual Dove has hit on the problem. For us small time growers it is best to grow just as many earlies or 2nds as we can eat by early October. They are very hard to keep any longer without cold storage. Here in Tipperary we have only had 2 nights of light frost so far and in such conditions only maincrop will hold.

It is a carrot. There were a few of them in my carrot patch this year. From what little I know carrots can be many colours. The reason we have mostly orange ones is thanks to the Dutch who developed them that colour out of homage to their royal family the house of Orange.

 Still lots of weeding to do between the parsnips and the leeks. No end to garden work in sight. Yipee!
