    Default Kale for Carrots!

    I seem to have ended up with a disproportionate number of carrots, but no kale at all!

    I've a few of:
    Paris Market (stump rooted)
    Adelaide
    Resistafly f1
    Autumn king
    systan f1
    early nantes
    parmax (stump rooted)

    See what I mean!? Any one care for a swap?

    Are you talking about seeds Hazel ? If so PM address and I will send Kale for carrots.

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

    I am indeed, Alice - haven't got as far as seedlings yet! Any particular carrots that you have your eye on, or shall I surprise you?! Will PM my addy to you.

    WW - kale is a member of the brassica family - and you pick the crinkly leaves from late autumn to early spring, so a good one for the winter months! Leaves are good steamed and tossed in a little butter - yum!

    This sounds nice. If I had the room I might actually look into some myself. But finding the space in my garden with all the things I'm growing is very difficult. LOL. Many thanks Hazel.

    I thought I might try celery, celeriac and kohl rabi, Shirl - but I'd got them down for next year rather than this, so no worries if you don't have.....will send you the some parmex if you pm me your addy - going to the PO at lunchtime so if you get a move on I'll get them in the lunchtime post!

    Ooo - nice avatar too!
