Allotment King

Autumn King carrots

Now that’s what I call a carrot.

if there’s a better late carrot than Autumn King (here’s where I get my seeds), please tell me about it. But I reckon it’s the daddy.

Mercifully I have two 4m rows of these and the remains of the shitty white carrots. They should take us through to late autumn or even Christmas.

Less good news is that I’ve lost control of the weeds and brambles at the back of my plot. It’s rained so much and I’ve had so little time. Getting it shipshape again is going to take hours and break my bloody back.

So naturally I’m putting it off until tomorrow.

    Got my Autumn King carrot seeds from the same place as you, and they’ve done brilliantly this year. Really pleased.

    I don’t have much luck with carrots, they don’t like my heavy London clay. I will keep trying because my dog loves cooked carrots on his dinner!!
