How to grow extra long carrots

These are the fascinating things you find while hibernating in wicked cold weather, surfing through Facebook and Pinterest.  This was just too fun not to share.  I think this would be a great Mad Scientist gardening experiment to keep the adventure alive.

The carrot tube experiment.
I wonder if the guy ever got the giant carrots extracted from the tubes?


  1. Interesting read- they def outgrew my carrots! I don't know if I'd have the patience to make the sand/soil mix, but perhaps in the future I will find the time.

  2. Jason and I were just discussing our future garden plans yesterday. Hmmm. . .

  3. This reminds me of Wallace and Grommit: the Curse of the Ware-Rabbit.
