carrot top

I scored this beauty at a library book sale and you will be seeing more of it.

We decided to try this with a fresh bunch of carrots. We started the "garden" about 2 weeks ago. The nice thing is that you get to eat the carrots and the tops don't go to waste.


We just put our tops in water without pebbles and it didn't change the results.

Within about 3-4 days the first shoots appeared and we have been quite excited checking how tall they are getting.




So while interesting that carrots do this, the book doesn't say why or give an answer to what I have been asking myself - "what do I do with these things now?"

Any ideas?

Cute and fun thing to do. Cut the greens and use them as a decorative garnish on your dinner plates, sort of like parsley? Does that help. If not take them to Connely's bunnies!

can you re-plant them? I love the book, the cover is awesome!

This is very interesting...

But I have no suggestions for you. I'm actually just hoping seeing my comment in your box will make up for it...
