Tomatoes need lots of water, sage is hardy as anything and carrots need deep soil
These are ROUND carrots, Charlotte - they grow in 6 inches of soil and only grow to fit their surroundings. A bit like pythons and fish! I grew some a few years back, forgot to thin out the poor things and half of them came out marble size. I ate them anyway... http://
As a farmer, that kind of upsets me. I like to think of carrots having enough soil to do what they do naturally, not be forced to grow the wrong way - Jeez, listen to me. Time for a glass of wine.
Aw! But they are a special carrot breed which are supposed to be round, I didn't force them to end up spherical. It's only the size which is influenced by the container, not the shape. I was sad that I forgot to thin them out so they weren't bigger, but their roundness was entertaining!
