Purple Carrots

Dropping out of school to become a subsistence farmer is probably not in the cards. I decided to look and see if I had any carrots in my garden. I picked the first couple I saw before I decided this is dumb I will see if they grow any more. On the plus side they taste like carrots and I didn't even weed around them. I really just cleaned the rocks out of the soil, put seeds in the ground and came back four months later. On the minus side they are red, not purple, and remain tiny. So much for Cosmic Purple Carrots. Actually though, looking at their pictures maybe they are the color they were supposed to be and I just didn't buy a purple enough variety. Next time maybe I should try Deep Purple, or perhaps Purple Haze.
