    Default Carrot micro greens

    I was thinning out my carrot seedlings today (must learn to sow more thinly!) and couldn't bear to just chuck out the babies. So I ate them and was amazed at how much they taste like, well, carrot! Which made me think, has anybody tried growing carrots as micro greens? I think I might give it a go - some compensation for the, ahem, lovely weather this year.

    Surely that would be 'micro oranges' unless you eat the tops

    I've also eaten a few tiny baby carrots when thinning out and they were indeed very...carroty.

    Carrot for Micro Greens - Johnny's Selected Seeds
    I did grow some one year on wet kitchen paper, as you would cress. Very carroty taste and its a good way of using up old seeds - as long as you snip the green bits off in case the seeds have been treated with something ooh-nasty!
