Container Gardening Update

Following on from my previous post giving ideas for using florists buckets, the photo below shows my first pick of the carrot variety 'Paris Market 5 - Atlas'.

These small round carrots are great for pots. I would estimate the carrots below are just over half of the crop from a standard sized florist bucket. These bite size carrots are delicious and great for kids.

I have also been busy in the garden this week cutting and hanging mint branches for drying. The leaves will be used for teas and as tasty snacks for my pet chinchillas.

Horatio the rabbit also loves fresh mint and took great interest in the mint buckets.
