Carrot (Daucus carota)
The first time our kids pulled a carrot in the garden there was a moment of joy in realizing that carrots grow...under ground!!! Carrot are a wonderful and tasty addition to the garden. They can be eaten young and tender or left in the ground to be used at your convenience. We sow carrots in early spring and often have a batch left in the ground to use for Christmas meals.
(Approximately 150 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions: Sow 1 seed 1/2" deep every 2" in rows in early spring. Full sun. Thin to one carrot every 4". Carrot seeds can take a while to germinate. Keep moist.
