They taste best after a frost or two...it concentrates the sugars in the root.

I like my carrot best grated up into a cake...now there's some good eating! :D

has anyone used those carrot seed strips/tape. I bought a pack but think it might be better to spinkle and thin vs low grow rate. What do you guys think?

I've never used the seed tapes...they look convenient, but I always plant such a large row of carrots that I don't want to make the investment.

I plant lettuce radish and carrots together. When my lettuce is done I have lots of carrots . The radish are done fist. I always leave a couple radish go to seed and it helps shade the bed. The carrots seem to be more tender from the lettuce and the radish looses the soil for the tender carrots! I also find a little sand in the top 6 inches helps produce better carrots!
