This is a very good read, all about carrots, from the Carrot Museum. Friday Rookie Topic: Carrots  - Page 2 3085260134

My carrots in the ANSFG bed are starting to sprout. I'm already eating some from the old sfg bed. Sadly, I planted 3 other sections in the Salad Bar and they all failed, so I have a gaping hole in my succession planting for having carrots all year long. Maybe I'll replant that bed tomorrow. What can it hurt? Razz

Friday Rookie Topic: Carrots  - Page 2 Empty Stubby carrots!!

Post  kristi@cookcraftcultivate on 6/19/2018, 12:32 am

Has anyone else had trouble getting their carrots to grow to a normal size? The largest I have pulled has been about an inch long! They are a variety that is only supposed to grow about 6 inches in height, and my boxes are 8 inch boxes. They sprouted fine, and have nice leafy tops about 1 foot tall. I believe I am keeping the dirt evenly moist, as some recommend. But they've been in the ground for months and are still tiny!

What could I be doing wrong?

I'm hit and miss with carrots. But, I think for our climates, early fall is a good time to sow them.

Anyone else in a hot climate?

If you have tall leafy greens but the roots aren't forming well, your compost mix might need more phosphorous. Try adding some bone meal worked into the soil. It might be too hot for them, too - maybe try mulching to keep them a little cooler?

I planted mine last fall, ignored them ever since, and they're absolutely AWESOME! I planted them in my first ever ANSFG bed. Don't quote me on this, but mine seem to thrive on neglect. They seem to like it better when they dry out a little between waterings.

I also plant in late fall.  They grow a little, then sit there for most of winter and really take off late winter or early fall.

I usually plant early, but the square was frozen...the 3 squares that I did plant have come up spottily, and need succession re-planting which may be a good thing!  I have never been able to succession plant ANYTHING EVER.  So this splotchy failure is forcing me to succession plant!  CARROTS which me and my kids love love love.

Hmm, I thought it was too late, but maybe not. I have a million carrot seeds, so maybe I'll go looking for some empty squares and fill them up. What-have-I-got-to-lose? Razz
