Start Seeds Outdoors In spring once danger of hard frost is past, sow seeds in full sun in finely-worked, fertile soil. Sow 1/4 in. deep and 1/2 in. apart in rows 8 in. apart, or broadcast thinly in beds and cover lightly. Keep seed bed evenly moist as carrots can be slow to germinate, emerging over 10 to 20 days. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away as seedlings catch up quickly. Thin young carrots several times so seedlings are about 2 in. apart and have room they need to size up.

Growing Notes: Carrots like well worked soil and need consistent moisture to grow well. If your soil dries out fast, cover seedbed with floating row covers to help retain moisture during the germination period and water right through it. Keep carrots well-watered and thinned. Plant again 3 months before first expected fall frost for a late crop.

Harvest and Use: Let young carrots size up and color fully to orange before harvesting for best flavor. Sauté or steam just until tender crisp and serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice, sweet butter and fresh dill; or try buttered and glazed with a little maple syrup or honey.
