carrot 04 - 230x173Carrot is an edible version of that meadow and country road wildflower classic the Queen Anne's Lace.

This mineral rich vegetable is easily grown from seed planted now. Choose a sunny, open site.

The soil should be deeply dug, sandy or loamy and rich preferably from manures added to a previous crop.

Avoid growing in fresh manures as this will cause the carrot roots to fork.

Sow the seed rather thickly in shallow drills, rows or open patches then cover with up to 1 cm of fine soil.

carrot 03 - 230x307Be warned that snails, slugs and birds consider the emerging seedlings to be lunch!

In a few weeks, thin the plants to stand 7-10 cm apart.

To stop carrot rust fly keep the crowns well covered with soil, sprinkle with diazinon or naphthalene granules, or plant a few green onions or garlic cloves in the patch.

By planting a patch of early maturing varieties every few weeks a succession of young tender carrots can be harvested nearly all year.
