I bought Michael purple haze carrots last year for Valentine's Day, or something like that. We finally planted them in October, and according to the seed package, they should have been ready for harvest in two months. Well, they struggled for six months, as most of our ground plants do, due to a lack of sun on our tiny strip of dirt that is overshadowed on the east and west by two story buildings.
On Sunday, I wrapped my hands around one carrot's green foliage and gave a tug. It resisted hard. A few more tugs and out popped these awesome purple carrots. Good job little guys! Now I am going to eat you!
