Wild and Crazy Carrots?

Do you have carrots growing in your lawn? Like right where the random wildflowers were last year? I keep pulling up things that I SWEAR are angry little carrots, heavy on the extra root strings. Is this because my carrot seeds got swept out of the raised bed box and found homes in the lead-filled lawn soil? Or is this some weird hybrid weed that is going to take over the world? I guess what I'm wondering is if you guys have them too. Or if I'm alone. Oh, geez, tell me I ain't alone.


  1. That's Queen Ann's Lace, which is a wild carrot. And it will take over the world, and look damn good while it's doing it. This is what the folks at Wikipedia have to say: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daucus_carota

  2. I have mustard coming up all over the place. I love it.

  3. I feel like an angry little carrot today...
