Carrots are very nutritious and they are fairly easy to grow in a garden. Growing and harvesting your own carrots is a great way to take advantage of their nutritional benefits and get the freshest carrots possible!

Carrots thrive in cool temperatures so depending on your climate, it may be best to plant them during early spring or late fall. The ideal daytime temperature for carrots should be around 75ºF and night temperature should drop to 55ºF. When you grow carrots, the soil surface should be cleared of trash, rocks and large pieces of bark, so rake it thoroughly. You can leave smaller plant matter on the ground because this can help enrich the soil. The quality of the soil is a very important factor in successfully growing carrots; it should be sandy, well-drained loam. Heavy soils cause the carrots to mature slowly.

Knowing how to tell when carrots are ready to harvest is important for getting a good crop. It is very important to know how many days it takes your chosen variety of carrots to mature. Most carrots are ready to harvest when the shoulders are 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter but this depends of what variety you planted. To check the size of your carrots, gently remove some dirt from the top check the size of the root. To harvest, gently lift the carrot from the soil. Remove the tops to prevent moisture loss, rinse clean, and store in a refrigerator or cold cellar. Most varieties keep for several months in the fridge. You can “thin out” your carrot rows while they are still small, giving you a supply of delicious baby carrots prior to the main crop.

Carrots take longer to germinate than other vegetables so keep the soil moist after sowing. To reduce surface evaporation during the germination period, you could cover newly seeded soil with boards or old blankets for five to six days. Weeds can steal the nutrients in the soil so pull them out as soon as you see one growing.

With the video along with the tips above, growing your carrots won’t be hard even if you consider yourself as a newbie gardener.
