SOWING: Seed directly into vegetable garden from as soon as soil is workable. Cover seeds with 1/8 inch soil.

THINNING: When plants are 2-4 inches tall, thin to 2 to 3 inches apart.

SPACING: Rows can be spaced 15-18 inches apart, or much closer if limited for space. In beds space 2-4 inches apart in all directions.

GERMINATION: Two weeks in temperatures of 60 degrees. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Plant at 2 or 3 week intervals for continual harvest. Planting can continue until July. Carrots grow best in a sunny location with rich, light soil and regular thorough watering. For best results fertilize and cultivate soil to a depth of 6 to 8 inches prior to planting.
