Baby Carrots

I dug up some carrots today.  The weather has been rainy but mostly above freezing, so the soil was wet but not frozen.

These 'Danvers half long' carrots are small because they were crowded.

These ‘Danvers half long’ carrots are small because they were crowded.

These ‘Danvers half long’ carrots (more like quarter long or even eighth long in this case) were not intended to be small; they didn’t grow well because there were too many for the space and I didn’t thin them.  Two of them split into a vee shape, trousers style.  Fewer, larger carrots would be easier to clean and prepare for eating.
