Carrots from the barrel!

It was not all work and no play last year. We had some success's, maybe more by accident than design! This is Sinead ( one of Stephen's sisters) and of course Kevin pulling the last of the carrots from the barrel. We had about 3 lots like this from it. Watching the gardening programmes on UK,TV style, the carrot fly seemed to be a very resourceful pest but cannot fly too high!

We filled the barrel with a layer of stones, plenty of manure ,just to bring up the level a bit and 2 bags of Westland multi purpose compost with added John Innes. Seemingly it does not dry out too fast as it is a soil based compost. The carrots grew no problem. The taste was unbelievable compared to the shop bought ones
