I have a small project going that has been interesting. Was wondering if anyone else does this? Last year we had a grand bumper crop of carrots! We canned, dried, ate, souped, sticked and just about did all we could think of to do with them. We even gave away about a bushel. I filled the bottom drawers of the fridge with more and kept them over the winter and of course they began to grow so I stuck some back in the ground and they grew big flower heads and looks like they will produce seeds. My sister-in-law and my niece belong to a book club and just finished reading a book called "The Beet Farm" and she said in the book, this place saved half their crop to produce seeds in the same manner I am doing with the carrots. Think I might try this too----unless the deer eat all the carrot and beet tops----again!
