***CARROT GROWING GUIDE BELOW***

Carrots are a popular root vegetable that are easy to grow in sandy soil. They are resistant to most pests and diseases, and are a good late season crop that can tolerate frost. Not all carrots are orange; varieties vary in color from purple to white.

PLANTING

Plan to plant seeds outdoors 3 to 5 weeks before the last spring frost date.

Make sure your soil is free of stones; carrots need deeply tilled soil that they can push through.

Have you ever seen a carrot that has grown “legs” or forked? Fresh manure, or even recently applied rotted manure, can cause carrots to fork and send out little side roots. Don’t use it before you plant your seeds.

Plant seeds 3-4 inches apart in rows. Rows should be at least a foot apart.

PLANT CARE

Gently mulch to retain moisture, speed germination and block the sun from the roots.

Soil should be well drained and loose to prevent forking and stunting of the root growth.

Once plants are an inch tall, thin so they stand 3 inches apart. Snip them with scissors instead of pulling them out to prevent damage to the roots of remaining plants.

Water at least one inch per week.

Weed diligently.

Fertilize 5-6 weeks after sowing.

Carrots taste much better after a couple of frosts. Following the first hard frost in the fall, cover carrot rows with an 18-inch layer of shredded leaves to preserve them for harvesting later.

PESTS/DISEASES

Carrot Fly

Wireworms

Flea Beetles

Aster Yellow Disease will cause shortened and discolored carrot tops and hairy roots. This disease is spread by pests as they feed from plant to plant. Keep weeds down and invest in a control plan for pests such as leafhoppers. This disease has the ability to overwinter.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
