My First Hydroponic Carrot

 

It’s hard growing carrots in a hydro system, at least for someone as impatient as I am. Unlike Lettuce or Peppers I can’t see them to know what is really going on, it’s enough to drive me a bit nuts. All those weeks spent using up space under the grow lights, all that nutrient solution and I still have no idea if it is working out..

Well today I caved, even though I’m still about three weeks from the theoretical harvest date I pulled one to take a look … I’m inordinately pleased with this. (The variety is Cosmic Purple.)

Okay so soon the paranoia will creep back and I’ll start to worry that this was a one off but for now I’m going to remain pleased.
