Today’s harvest: Purple carrots, cape gooseberries & granadillas

by Lala

Today I picked some long awaited produce for lunch. I’m happy with how the rainbow carrots are doing. I got a nice purple one. They look very interesting in cross section.

This was my second attempt at growing these. The previous crop didn’t do anything but grow leaves. These are growing lots of foliage and sweet carrots. There are orange and white ones as well.

We are still waiting for the first spring rains. The vegetable gardens are doing well though for now. We’ve got a rainwater collect tank now to help save the municipal water as we also have water restrictions on.
