Parisienne Carrots

I've mentioned before that one of the reasons I grow food in is because of all of the interesting varieties of vegetables that you can't get at the store. When I saw these Parisienne Carrots from Baker Creek I just had to grow them. Carrots don't do all that well here, our soil is heavy and compacted, lacking a lot of humus. Since these carrots grow fat and wide instead of long and deep, they do well in heavier soils.
