Vegetable in the vehicle, and rubbish (6)


I believe the answer is:


'vegetable' is the definition.
(I know that carrot is a type of root vegetable)

'vehicle and rubbish' is the wordplay.
'vehicle' becomes 'car' (car is a kind of vehicle).
'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'rubbish' becomes 'rot' (both can mean nonsense).

'in the' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for carrot that I've seen before include "Rewarding vegetable?" , "Red vegetable used as inducement" , "Incentive (but not the stick)" , "Orange vegetable" , "Vegetable - incentive" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
