Organic Carrots: Scarlet Nantes Planting Instructions:
Start carrots 2 to 3 weeks before the last frost, planting them ½" deep, ½" apart and in rows 1 to 2" apart. Carrots grow best with full sun and in deeply worked soil with a fine, weed-free seedbed. When plants have established, thin the crop to 1 to 4" of spacing to reduce competition. In dry weather, make a 2" deep furrow, plant seeds, and cover with ¼" soil.
Organic Carrots: Scarlet Nantes Harvesting Instructions:
The carrots are ready to harvest when the carrot has turned bright orange. Use a hand trowel to harvest small quantities of carrots, being careful not to disturb remaining plants. For a larger harvest, you may use a pitchfork and shovel, digging alongside the row.
