One hybrid and cultivated ...
A tiny thinning from the main vegetable garden so that others may have the elbow room they desire. Despite the little nibble that is was, it was yummy nonetheless.
Didn't know carrots had elbows, eh? Ah, the things we learn!
The other a wild thing . . .
A beautiful specimen. I might chop it, roast it and make a hot brew with it. Or I might chop it and make a fresh plant tincture with it. Or just simmer and serve it as a food with some sweet carrots to balance the bitterness.
Dandelion root. Taraxicum officinalis. It too has elbows. :)
