I was making pumpkin soup this morning.
Into my pot go onion, pumpkin, carrot, orange sweet potato and white potatoes. I buy ‘ugly’ carrots, those with bumpy, irregular shapes instead of the perfect smooth cylinders you see in the super-market. It reduces farm wastage, gives the farmer a second income stream and they taste exactly the same, or maybe better.
Into the bag went my hand, and out came this beauty. Well, you can see why I had to laugh. The Husband reckons you should never plant carrots when you need to use the bathroom.
I simply think this is a new variety, called Bustin’…
What do you think? Got a better name for a carrot which is clearly trying to hold it all in? Or better still, have you got an even funnier vegetable photo?
