How To Grow Carrots In The Vegetable Garden


How To Grow Carrots In The Vegetable Garden!

Do you find that the carrots that you grow in your garden are short and stubby?

Do you have clay or hard soil in your garden?

We all want to pull up beautiful, long, grocery store worthy carrots! But, unfortunately, if you don’t properly prepare the garden soil this is not going to happen!

You could end up with short, stubby deformed carrots.

Now don’t get me wrong, they will still taste like carrots, but they won’t have grown to their full length and potential!

Garden Soil

If the key to growing carrots is garden soil, what should we do?

You have two options.

1. You can till and turn the soil to loosen it. Pick out all the rocks, weed roots, sticks, etc. This will help to prevent any hard objects from deterring your carrots from reaching their potential.

However, depending on your garden soil this might not be enough.

It might not make much of a difference if you have really hard or clay soil.

2. My favorite method is to dig out a small ditch in your garden bed.

I dig mine about a foot deep and about six to 12 inches wide.

Then I fill my small ditch with my Seed Starting Mix!
