I started moving some dirt around in the bed that was new last year, in preparation for putting in planks along one side to raise part of it (it's on a slope--this will result in a terrace). I dug up some weeds and found a bunch of last year's carrots. If they're carrot sized and look like carrots but were in the ground for a really long time, do you think they'll be like carrots, or like wood? I started them from seed, so in theory they could have sprouted during the late fall or winter, but I know some of these carrot tops were out there in the bed all summer and fall. I just didn't need them so they stayed put. For now I've washed them, cut off the tops, and they're in the fridge. About 2 quarts.
