Today’s harvest included some interesting carrots (Danvers), baby tomatoes, and one small pepper that toppled over a pepper plant. Cara has renamed this variety of carrots “the voluptuous dancer” which seems much more defining than Danvers. Carrots with multiple taproots or forks like these occur for several reasons. Most likely they are associated with rocky or heavy soils. Digging and the addition of compost helps to alleviate this problem.
