I have never seen what a carrot looks like coming out of the ground. Is this a carrot or QAL? If carrot, I'll stick it back in:

Shocked But I don't have enuff of them to eat them so small.

That one came out of a radish square, which is why I wasn't sure what it was, so it was an escapee anyway. Probably blew in there back in March when I did the first carrot square next to the radishes, so it's not a carrot week carrot.

Will it keep growing or should I go get it? Carrot Week 2012! - Page 11 1280598131

Took a close look at all the carrot tops this morning. Noticed the stems were smooth but 2 plants had little hairy bristles, pulled it up and it was the carrot imposter, the white roots of queen anne's lace. I admit to putting both plants on a brick to fry in the sun Twisted Evil for wasting precious nutrients. The real carrots are coming along nicely but not big enough to pull.

I don't think so. There have been years when I have fabulous foliage and no great carrot under ground. I usually try to look for the root shoulders to give me a clue.

Dang nice carrots, Landarch! My leaves aren't even as big as Roosters yet.

At least yours are orange, Kay. I pulled up an older one planted before carrot week and it was a long skinny white carrot. I put it back in the dirt to orange up but it doesn't look like it made it.

Nice tip to look at the shoulders, camp. I didn't know that.

I figure mine should be ready to harvest around 12th July or later...

I didn't know about the "Carrot Week" plantings.

But I planted three successive beds of carrots in late August/early September last year. These were planted thickly. We started harvesting in December, and have harvested continuously since then. I am working on the last bed now, and figure we should have fresh carrots until about mid-July.

Because they are planted thickly, they do not get large very quickly. But as I pull the larger ones, the smaller ones get room to grow. So each bed will be harvested over a period of two or three months.

Maybe with some tuning, we can get a year-round supply of fresh carrots.

I'll pull up one of mine as soon as another zone 6'er pulls up theirs.

Are we thinking mid July, 6'ers?

The number of days on the package is just a ballpark figure. Don't pull your carrots just because it's been 70 days. I pulled back a little soil today and see some orange finally!!

I think I planted early to mid march. I planted second round of seeds in a few squares that I am letting grow a bit more just to see how they do in the summer heat.
