In a rush to get something growing on my new plot I planted some early carrots from a cheap packet of seed. I did not think Autumn Giant would do quickly enough although I do like them. 10 weeks later and they are ready to eat as baby carrots. I was very disappointed with the taste, but today  I had some that were picked and then I forgot, left them behind at the allotment. Took the tops off today and steamed as usual, they were lovely and tasty.


Do you think the taste develops after leaving for a couple of days? instead of being cooked within an hour of picking.

No good for my allotment in a growing sense, but as it seemed like the usual rainfall for the year all came last night it done me a favour. I chipped out all the weeds, grass and rubbish out of the gravel drive yesterday. It looked a mucky mess, this morning all clean gravel and the drive and parking area looks like I've dressed it with new stuff. I expect it also got the worms working on the allotment they should have taken down a fair amount of manure last night.

I think I have been allotmenteering for about 20 years and in that time I have been kicked off twice The first a large cooperative association affiliated with the National Allotment Society and the second a small parish council controlled allotment.  On neither occaission was Arbitration available.  So am I the forum champ or can someone beat me?  If you do dare to enter this thread don't go into detail as to why you was kicked out.  There are certain people on this forum who take pleasure in finding fault with you.  I expect they will have a go at me for just posting this genuine fun competition.

A few weeks, ago, I had an empty bed and some free seeds. So I planted some rows, not expecting a lot.

I now have lovely rows of Spinach, Chinese Cabbage, Chinese Kale, and Bok Choi.

They all look lovely but I'm not sure what's the best way to cook them!

Ideas please you lovely lot.
