Organic Carrots: Tendersweet Planting Instructions:
Tendersweet Carrots grow best in full sun, planted ½" deep in rows 12" apart. Sow the seeds directly into the soil after the last frost has passed. Use well-worked, loose soil for best results. Use compost if the soil is too heavy. Cover seeds with ½" of light soil. Firm the soil lightly and keep evenly moist. Once the seedlings grow 2" tall, thin to 2 to 4" apart, depending on the desired carrot size. Keep the area well weeded and consistently watered.
Organic Carrots: Tendersweet Harvesting Instructions:
You can harvest baby carrots when they are big enough to eat. For full grown carrots, harvest when they reach 9 to 10" in length. To store the carrots through the winter, twist off the carrot tops, but do not wash the carrots. Layer them in damp sand or sawdust. In warmer climates, you may leave the carrots in the garden over winter and top them with a thick layer of mulch.
