A few weeks ago (yes, all of my posts this past week started out this way...) we brought in a surprising number of carrots from the garden (ok, S. did). I think they probably took a bit longer to mature than the seed packets said...but better late than never.

We had quite the assortment of sizes and colors...

Quite a few (maybe a third of them) had pest issues...I'm not quite sure what they are. Maybe root borers of some sort, I suppose? Either way, despite the pests, lots of them were just fine and sweeter than any carrot I've ever had. We'll definitely try the Danvers Half-longs again next year, as they seemed to do pretty well.

This is typical of the pest damage that we found.
