I didn't build it, just an old crate I got from work. It is 4'3 x 3'3 x 21 inches deep. I just drilled holes and added castor wheels.

I also grow in clay. After failing to get a single carrot for 2 seasons in a row I gave up. Now that I see those beautiful carrots of yours I may give it another try.
What varieties did you grow (succesfully)?
