I planted seed for carrots very early, I believe March. They are still grwoing I haven't dug any out for a few weeks. Should I keep them growing or pull them and plant something else perhaps more beans and some peas, Brussels sprouts.
Hmmmm, every plot has its problems. If the wireworms are going to ruin them, maybe its best to pull them and put them in the fridg. They will keep well in the fridg too. How many do you have? I have never seen carrots get woody like radishes do. I don't have the heat to deal with that you folks are complaining about. 87 here today.

A question that was on my mind too! Thanks for asking. I'm planning to start canning some of mine this weekend. Really hot and dry here in central Kansas too. I gave up on the cukes today. I'm debating replanting for a fall crop now. I should have enough time to get a nice crop before it freezes.
If you live where it gets hot in the summer the carrots will get woody and too hard to eat. Leave them in the ground until cold weather pull them up when the tempersture is cold they will no longer be woody and you can eat them.
