We’ve been waiting for it to warm up so we could sow our carrots outside and then last week a thick blanket of snow covered our veg plot and it’s still there!!!!

So this year we have decided to get sowing some carrot seeds into pots in the greenhouse as they do really well in containers, as long as the pot is deep enough. We are going to mix up some lovely Solar Yellow with Cosmic Purple and good old Chantenay for our own rainbow mix of carrots. We will then harvest some at baby carrot stage and allow others to grow onto full size.

So all is not yet lost and lets hope the snow melts soon, we can cloche our plot and sow some carrot seeds outside too!
