    Well, I’d like to say it was another grear podcast – but I can’t – I’m trying to do a Gaelic assignment and it’s busting my a** to the point where I haven’t even had time to listen…. ;0(

    Hi Misty,

    I highly recommend yellow carrots. The ones I was able to get, (for a while), were sweet and pleasant, with none of the bitterness of the orange rascals. The crunch was very much like that of a nice crisp cool radish. They yield and break up quickly in the mouth, making way for the next bite. Honest, you could give a big fat yellow carrot to a kid as a snack. Try that with the old orange lumber :)

    BTW you know the Queen Ann’s Lace that grows all over in mid to late summer? That’s the ancestor of modern carrots. Pull one up, wash the tap root, and take a small bite. There’s the carrot taste, but way more bitter than what’s in the store today. I don’t imagine that ancient people ate it raw.

    Thanks for another great podcast. Loved the new music from fans!

    Sorry I’m a bit late leaving a comment but I only got to listen to this podcast today.

    With regards to letting the pig run around in your garden before you plant; the only thing I would make sure of is that you do it early enough that any manure has time enough to break down. You don’t want to burn your seedlings when you plant them and fresh manure can do that.

    Haven’t listened to the rest of it yet but wanted to tell you that before I forgot. :)
