Carrots are a very popular vegetable that can provide you with food for quite some time. In other words, carrots can easily adapt to their environment and can withstand being neglected—to a degree, of course.
You can start planting carrots in early spring and continuously until mid-summer; however, if you live in an area with milder winters, planting a fall crop is recommended. Seeds need to be planted sparingly—and in rows—yet the soil must be packed firmly over each row. There should be twelve to fifteen inches between each row.
Make sure your carrots are in full sunlight. Seeds will begin sprouting within twelve to eighteen days. You can begin harvesting when your carrots are around the size you prefer.
