START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In spring once danger of hard frost is past, sow seeds in full sun in finely-worked, fertile soil. Sow 1/4 inch deep and 1/2 inch apart in rows 8 inches apart, or broadcast thinly in beds and cover lightly. Keep seed bed evenly moist as carrots can be slow to germinate, emerging over 10 to 21 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Thin seedlings several times so they are 2 to 3 inches apart and have room to size up.

 

GROWING NOTES

Carrots like well-worked soil and need consistent moisture. If your soil dries out fast, cover seed bed with floating row covers to help retain moisture during the germination period. Keep carrots well weeded throughout the growing season. Plant again 3 months before first expected fall frost for a late crop.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Let carrots size up to at least 5 to 6 inches and turn deep orange or golden yellow before harvesting for best sweet flavor. Eat raw, sauté, or lightly steam. Set off their flavor with fresh lemon or orange juice and a sprinkling of minced herbs. Or glaze with a little honey and ginger or cinnamon. Fresh mint leaves are a pretty and tasty garnish.
