Carrots You Say?
Lots of Vitamin E in there!
Pile 'em up!
Counted 26 or perhaps there was more?
The lone farmer not so far away
Sometime ago during a family occasion, a neighbor was scolding her son because he was playing and tossing the food from his plate to the ground. I heard her say that the food will feel sad and it would go away and he will go hungry. The son replied they will just go to the store and buy things to eat.
Also, while visiting a friend, she shared that her daughter doesn't like to eat veggies because she thinks they were grass, lol! It's quite amusing yet worrying that kids nowadays seem to not know how the food on their tables come about.
Anyway, these photos of carrots were captured by the husband earlier this year when while on the way to return my brother's truck when he passed by a farm where they were harvesting carrots. And being the curious he was, he pulled over and went checking them out, lol!
We have not tried growing carrots even in our little garden at the backyard so it fascinates me seeing large farms planted with it. I often say one that grows them is the most patient human on earth. Why so? Because I think it is the most challenging crop to tend to.
From what I heard, it takes 15 days from sowing for carrots to germinate. The most difficult phase is when they grow to about 3 inches, they need to be thinned out so that each stem is 3 inches away from the the other. I wonder if you can imagine if there were 100 stems that germinated in one row, most of them have to be removed. Doing this would take many days for the job to be accomplished and at a sitting position!
That's why I was impressed with the migrant worker (at the last photo) who loves to grow carrots even when he is just alone tending to them and the farmland isn't small (although it looks small in the picture, lol).
And it's Sunday morning here, a beautiful one so I'm planning to go for a walk by the dirt road but I gotta have breakfast first :)
Cheers to the weekend and ciao!

Fresh carrots are in the house! Yey! I think I only eat carrots when it is in spaghetti sauce and sopas. Lol. I don't know much about the cultivation of carrots since it has different needs compared to other root crops. !PIZZA
Haven't had any carrots for months I think. Yung sahog lang ng pancit, lol! Some farmers say it's pretty easy but just by looking at it, I think it is challenging to tend to.

Carrots are one of our favorites vegetable to grow. Some years they do very well while other years not so much. I've found out that the more sun they receive the better. Not only are the carrots great to eat, the green foliage is great stuff to juice. We add a few apples in with some carrots and carrot tops and what a wonderful nutritious drink.
This year we harvested a bumper crop of carrots. Thinning them when they reach 3 inches does take some time but is totally necessary if you are looking to get a good yield
Oh wow... These are amazing produce you've got!
And I gotta admit, I didn't know the foliage can be juiced. That's a new learning! So thank you lots for sharing :) The thinning is necessary indeed if we want bigger and better yield. I learned that having them too close with each other isn't good.

In the past, I found it hard to pluck out so many vibrant young seedlings. This year we thinned like crazy and got the best harvest in the last 6 years. I'll be thinning like crazy from now on!
Carrots are an important fruit and a great source of dietary pigments.
It could benefit heart health, cholesterol balance, and weight loss objectives.
These carrots are very beautiful and big, I love them so much
Thank you for sharing with us, be happy always!!!
That's right, one of the healthiest if I may say so :) Thank you too for your amazing inputs. I wish you a wonderful new week :)
It's very healthy and we should be eating often.
Thank you so much, I hope you have a great week ahead
People tend not to thin out their carrots properly.
Done right they are one of the easiest vegetables to grow CJ.
That I think is the challenging part, to thin them out properly. But we may try growing some in the summer :)
Oh if you do it in the open ground you will nail it, people try to do in shallow pots and surprise surprise get pishpoor results!
Thanks for that tip Tito Ed :) Gotta try it one day.
