If you look back at an October post of mine in this thread, you will see me complaining about trying to grow Sugarsnax, Branching Out. They have always been a little difficult for us to grow because of length. In another garden, I regularly dug out the beds. At a cultivated soil depth of at least 8", they did okay - although they generally want to go deeper. The soil was different there than in the big garden - more pea gravel. The trouble they had in 2022 may have finally convinced DW that we can't follow the tractor guy's tilling with a Sugarsnax planting.Sugarsnax and Napoli
It's possible that I have tried Napoli but I may have just been attracted to the listing in a catalog . It's those Nantes types that I have some trust in.
Okay, @flowerbug , carrots can produce well in a small amount of square feet. Never.the.less, I can't see me out there straining the soil through a screen ...
Unfortunately, it seems that in different locations, different soils, different veggies taste different and sometimes, not so good. @Cosmo spring garden , I had acorn squash as a regular thing in one garden. Changed to a different place and they produced well but tasted funny. We had all these squash and didn't want to eat them. And yes, peeling little carrots can not only be no fun but, actually a little dangerous! It may be why FlowerBug's mother didn't care for the little ones. My solution used to be to use the scrubber on them but DW wasn't gonna go for that ...
