Carrot seeds are tiny, so they need to be sown shallowly. Your trick here will be keeping the top-most layer of soil damp during the long germination period. To prepare for planting, water the soil deeply. Spread the seeds across the soil and separate them slightly to ensure that carrots don’t grow into each other. Water the soil regularly but not too much — try to conserve your water, that will help conserve the seeds in the soil too.
Harvest anytime between September and November. Don’t stress about their size — carrots are the unique vegetable that can be harvested at any size. Your best bet, of course, is to wait for the carrot to turn bright orange — that ensures the right taste. After harvest, store at cold temperatures just above 0ºC.
Get creative in the kitchen.
You know it, and we know it too. The sweet aroma of carrots is unlike any other. Fresh carrots are juicy and suit basically every dish as a side. Eat them raw as a snack, or use in salads, vegetable pans, or even juice. They’re suitable for freezing, too.
