Growing Instructions (USDA Zones 3-9):
Start your seeds in full sun to partial shade 3-5 weeks before your last frost. Plant your seeds 2 inches apart and ⅛ to ¼ inch deep. When thinning, cut plants down. Don’t pull up the excess carrots or it may damage root systems of neighboring carrots. When carrots have reached maturity, simply pull them up by the tops. Carrots do best in sandy, loose soil. If your carrots are too short and ball-like, it means that the soil wasn’t loose enough to push through. Carrots taste better after going through one or more frosts, so don’t worry if it freezes when they are in the ground.
