I almost gave up on carrots after last year. We have so much clay in our soil that once it dries out it is like concrete. Not so good for growing carrots. I found a packet of "Short and Sweet" carrots from Burpee this year and thought I'd give it one more try. Hence... carrot torpedos!
Took a shovel to the row this afternoon to dig a few up for dinner: chicken stew with peas, carrots, and potato dumplings.
