carrot head

I've done a bit more weeding while the baby naps, just twenty minutes here and there. So if you've even wondered what Carrot plants do in their second year, I've found out with the rest of those over-wintered ones (no longer edible).

They grow into monstrously tall ferny plants (taller than my tomato cages)
and sport wide flat flowers (actually big flat heads made up of many tiny flowers).
I yanked them all out of the tomato plot. They were pretty interesting-looking, though.
