Oh! That reminds me of what we did with carrots.

Start regular carrot seeds in a seed starting tray. As soon as the seedlings have a few leaves they already have a hugely long taproot that is the thickness of a hair.

Take them out to the garden and plant them. However you put that hair taproot in the ground is how it will grow.

right, i think you need a deep cell type to do them well from starts.

Only if you are wanting them to grow straight.

:lol:

If that taproot is put into a hole as a spiral, you then get a spiral carrot.

I always wanted to try one year to make them into letters...... haven't.


Also... I really like all of the edible flowers.

We really like nasturtiums, they love our cool weather.

Calendula are also nice. Rip the flowers apart and sprinkle in a salad or sandwich.
