For those times when you know, you really should take a moment but...."I'll just get this done first"...
Feeling sorry for the folks who are only allowed to buy 'regular' carrots.
Did I tell you about the family who tried one of our veg bags once upon a time?

"We really liked the veg' but the kids found the carrots.....A bit too carrotty"
As you can imagine I've been tireless in my strivings to drive both the flavour and personality out of them roots ever since.
Can't promise this kind of sculptural beauty for everyone, every week.
