carrot season

Carrots are available in the grocery store year round, it is hard to imagine that there is a carrot season. There is, and it is now. 

Carrots have a fairly long growing time. Months of steady water, not too much or the teeny tiny seeds wash away, not too little or the seeds burn up and never sprout. Level soil so they grow straight and long. As a grower, we never really know what is happening underground until we pull the carrots. And there was this:

It's like a carrot Celtic knot! 3 intertwined carrots all wrapped around each other. One carrot from above ground looked a bit on an angle, but we never expected this!

And for good measure, another photo with other vegetable friends.
