How does my garden grow? Weirdly, apparently.
Did I mention that I made a carrot?

Very well, then, consider it Mentioned.

The Alleged Garden is in its usual late-summer stage of "ehhhfuckit", except for the part where after complaints from the neighbours I've been making a more active attempt to keep the tomatoes in check which has so far completely backfired in that trimming the leaves only seems to be encouraging one plant in particular to hyperactive growth, rather like shaving your legs. 'Sunsugar' is not invited back next year because, while it's prolific, it has no manners.

I shall not mention what the cucumbers are doing. It would only upset you. Especially if you were the guy who rather imprudently left the bicycle chained up where they could reach it...

Interesting luminous pink carrot! Which breed of carrot is that?

It's "Dragon", which is a deep red on the outside and a relatively vivid orange inside (my camera does not reproduce reds and oranges well...) -- technically I think you're not supposed to pull them until the first frost, or something, but I wanted to see if there was anything DOWN there... :) (I've also peeked at the "french market" carrots, which are small and round, and at least one of those developed into a carrot, so I'm already doing much much better than any of the last few times I've tried to get carrots to grow.)
