|First Carrot. Nikon D7000|
To combat the menace of weeds and Carrot Root Fly, we planted carrot seeds in coke bottles filled with compost. The bottles had their tops and bottoms cut off then they were placed on the ground so that there was about 8+ inches sticking up.
I decided to see how they are doing today; the tops look lush, but that is no guide to what is happening underground.
Luckily, there is orange gold at the bottom of the foliage!
They tast great too.
