Purple Carrot

Our kids were at our neighbours the other morning and Jasper came home with a Purple Carrot from Nik and Cal, they thought I might like to try it out as a dye  ….. only one carrot  did not seem like much and we all had a bite to make sure it was a carrot ! I grated the carrot and  found some silk scraps, paj and tissue silk and through in a piece of wool roving as well.

Am so glad I did…. the pictures are testament to the Purple Carrot

( I think it is a F1 hybrid so you won’t find the Seeds at Eden Seeds but we did find some seedlings at one of those big stores )
