Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - my ugly carrots would not make Tesco's shelves

I have started the carrot harvest and most of what I am digging up are about three inches long. They are, like many folks here in Wales, short, fat and ugly. But unlike Welsh people they taste great. My honey glazed carrots are a favourite of Joshua’s so the menu for the next few weeks should delight the Pest.

My mum used to preserve carrots for the winter in long sand boxes as we did not have a freezer back at Butterwell farm. I am on the case as it would be good to have home grown carrots on Christmas day.
