I’ve never had big luck with carrots, not that I can say that I’ve ever tried really hard to give them what they might need. I threw a few purple carrot seeds down in the Spring and there is some return.
In the pot next to the carrot is the self-seeded outdoor across a New England winter solanum aviculare. If it wants to live that bad I’ll bring it in for the winter, as it did not get to producing it’s aborigine delighting kangaroo apples. It’s only droopy because I just pulled it out of the earth.
Below I was trying to get a back-lit picture of a great lulo leaf that grows on the porch. A little over-exposed, I think, but these leaves are fabulous.
