Talking Carrot Tops

Anyone else grow carrot tops? Mine LOVE them !

How do you grow them ?
- Cut the tops off carrots ; They should be about one inch.
- Place the tops in water
* The water should be about half the hight of the tops.

- Make sure they get pleanty of sunlight
- Make sure theres always water in the dish
- Leave them in dish for no more then 2 1/2 weeks.

Note :

If you see mold forming on the carrot , throw it out !
If you see the carrot turning black , throw it out !
If your carrot starts growing legs and eyes , defently throw it out


Carrot tops at around 2 weeks




How to feed :
- Simply trim the greens off the carrot and rinse !

I just had to add that comedians Carrot Top and Gallagher are the only other life form on earth that can compete with our conure when it comes to the art of wasting food The way our bird tosses around the stuff she's supposedly eating, she shouldn't be called "parrot", she should be called "DUCK!!!"
