Carrots

Very little rivals the flavor of homegrown carrots. Carrots are a cool season vegetable, but soil temperatures must be at least 40 degrees Fahrenheit (optimal is 80 degree Fahrenheit), and the newly sprouted seeds must not be allowed to dry out. It often takes up to 2 weeks to germinate and must be kept moist. Firm seed beds or a very light mulch of straw or grass clippings will keep moisture around the seed. A fabric row cover will raise soil temperature. Commercial growers wait 7-8 days after sowing and lightly scorch the ground with a gas torch to kill newly sprouted weeds and give the carrots a better chance. Early thinning and weeding are a must. Carrots do better on light, sandy or silty loams and do not require high fertility. They are especially sweet when harvested after a few good frosts. 1/2 oz. per 300 feet. One packet = 2 g. = 1200 seeds, sows 35 feet. CULTURE: Sow seed 1/4-1/2 deep, 3 to 4 seeds per inch in rows 10 inches apart. Avoid overseeding. Thin to 2 inches apart. For deep beds broadcast seeds and thin to 2 inches or lay chicken wire down, using one seed per space. SEASON: Cool season. Beginning in mid-April, sow every 2 weeks until mid-July. MIN. SOIL TEMP: 40 degree Fahrenheit. GERMINATION: 6-14 days. SOIL: Light soils, pH 5.5-6.8. COMPANION PLANT: Peas, lettuce, chives, tomatoes, onions, rosemary, sage. NOT dill. PESTS: WIREWORMS: Control through thoroughly cultivating sod and introducing beneficial nematodes. STORAGE ROT: Cured through crop rotation, storing only sound, unwashed, roots 32-35 degree Fahrenheit in sawdust of sand
