Ugly Carrots Still Taste Good

Not exactly straight and true, but still tasty

I’ve never had much luck growing carrots.

I mean, I can grow carrots, but they never look like those big orange sticks you see in the grocery store.

It doesn’t seem to matter what variety I grow, either. Short ones, long ones, fat ones, skinny ones — it doesn’t matter. They always end up looking like a bunch of mangled roots even if they’re given plenty of room and lots of soft, loamy soil.

That’s why I grow the multi-colored ones now. Even if they’re an ugly mess, all the colors make them look kind of cool.

Plus, once they’re chopped up and cooked or thrown in a salad, they still taste good.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
