View Full Version : Planting, growing, pullingup and eating foot long carrots

5th Jul 2001, 11:32
In the 'Barbeque' thread OCB suggested that I might start a thread about growing foot long carrots and eating them. Cooking them would be barbaric and uncivilised.

So I've taken up the challenge. Does anyone have any suggestions about ways to use a foot long carrot that don't involve cooking them?

Be inventive but please, do try not to get Jet Blast closed again...

Some off-the-cuff suggestions.

1) Doorstop.

2) Attractive environmentally friendly garden ornament.

3) Weapon to use against irritating natterjack toads which may live near you.

Conversation piece in otherwise boring household.

'Have you seen the size of Reginald's carrot, we're thinking of having it framed?' :)

Drill a small hole in the sharp end and insert an ink cartridge. Add a few decorative touches to the blunt end - beads, feathers, whatever - and use as a novelty biro. Could be a market for this ... environmentally friendly biros - onve the ink runs out you eat the container!

Not the sharpest carrot in the bunch, eigh?

A device used for muffling ones puffs, obviously.

Cut them up into small pieces and at Christmas, give the to all your friends and rellies as 1 foot long, 3-D carrot jigsaws.

eigh? We say, "A" here!

Do you puff up a muff or puff on a muff?

Yes, carrots are best eaten raw with a bit of s&p... Especially good in coleslaw with that other veg meant to be eaten raw - cabbage.
Alternately, don't eat - use as snowman's nose in the festive cold season - if you get that stuff.
