hello all. I wanted to get everyone's experience with regard to cold hardiness of carrots. We're having something of a warm snap, and it looks like it's going to rain frequently over the next week or so. In light of that, I figured I'd sow some carrot seeds. I had given up on ever growing them because invariably the slugs have wiped out my seedlings before they ever had a chance. This year, I decided to give it a go again, but in containers. While the forecast for the next week or so shows low temps above freezing, we surely will have many freezing days in the future (our 90% last frost day is in early to mid may). How cold would it need to be in order for me to feel compelled to move my containers indoors?
Also, how about parsnips? I held off on planting them because the package seemed to indicate they needed it warmer. I thought they were about the same as carrots?
