Grow Tasty Carrots

We have a difficult time getting carrots in our garden to have a sweeter taste.

Hot dry weather as well as the variety can influence flavor. Try planting carrots in early spring for an early summer harvest. Or, try planting seeds in mid to late summer for a fall harvest. The cooler temperatures make for sweeter flavor. Proper care will also improve the appearance and flavor. Water carrots and other garden plantings as the top few inches of soil feels moist but crumbles in your fingers. Thin carrot seedlings to provide space for the remaining plants to grow to full size. Try several different varieties to see which tastes best to you and your family.
