Piccadilly Farm Tasting!
August 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
CARROTS! Try some today at the Co-op!
Homegrown carrots have an incomparable flavor. Did you know that Charlie Nardozzi of VPR recommends planting a final crop of carrots around August 10th? He suggests planting a 60-day variety such as ‘YaYa’, ‘Napoli’ or ‘Thumbelina.’ Cover them with a floating row cover and when you water the carrots spray right on top of the cover to keep the soil consistently moist. This will protect your carrots from pests. If you keep your carrots thinned, weeded, and protected from frost, you will have super sweet treats from your garden into the winter! If this is too much trouble, Piccadilly Farm grows sweet, juicy carrots in rich soil near the edge of the Connecticut River. They are a real treat!
