Catastrophic Carrots - Urghhh!

As it was a nice sunny day, albeit very cold with a keen north-east wind, Husband suggested we made a start on the veg plot we help with in another villager's garden. When we arrived Husband divided the labour - I was given the nastiest job on god's earth. Whilst Husband gently planted out some broad beans I had to dig up and clear the remaining row of carrots (we had grown far too many). I started digging and picking up the carrots only to find a lot of them exploded into an orange mush - it was like handling sloppy cold mashed potato - it was truly awful - I shall not be eating carrots for a little while - I have been thoroughly put off!

I have a feeling that I still have some carrots left in one of our raised beds,planning on investigating at the weekend providing weather is still good!

Eeeugh ! There's something about decomposing root vegetables that competely decomposes one's stomach !

Seems you'd have been better with a shovel, to shovel then Husbands way. hope he gives you far pleasanter stuff to dig up in summer - like super healthy and scrummy spuds!!!
