Thank you Flighty! There were a few more, but this one was the best by a long way. It’s been transplanted into the plot after the seed got shoved in a pot after I got bored a few weeks ago – I’m hoping it’ll be alright. I’m guessing it’ll be very grateful for the soaking it got yesterday morning though.
What you need to do is start an interweb rumour that your carrot is the best, most delcious carrot ever and was grown, in solitude, for but he/she has gone bust and can’t afford it. Within mere hours the Daily Mail will run it as a page 3 item and you’ll have a bidding war on your hands. When you get on GMTV, slap Fiona Phillips (while you’re there, tell her I fancy her – don’t do that last bit on camera though otherwise my mates will kill me).
