This is officially the most carrot-shaped carrot I have pulled up this year (along with one of my 3 surviving spring onions)…

home grown carrot and spring onionI thought it’d be great for making a stir fry, but as I was preparing it I noticed  that someone had been nibbling his way through it (not unlike the Very Hungry Caterpillar, I think):

The slimy culprit – a Very Hungry Slug. I’m rubbish at dealing with pests. I felt sorry for the slug and put him back outside. So ultimately, this was all the carrot that was left for me…

But it was still very tasty.
