Carrots are a hardy and nutritious root vegetable that perennially make the “superfood” list. With regular watering and timely thinning, they can produce a bushel of tasty, crunchy veggies right in your backyard garden. Here’s how to put your green thumb to work and make your own carrots:
There are many different varieties of carrots. Depending on your soil, your climate, and the climate of the summer months, some varieties will do better than others. In general, the Chantenay and Nantes varieties are popular for their sweetness and crunch. Danvers, Imperator, and Gold Pak are also known for their flavor, but may require more intensive preparation of the soil.
Carrots love clay soils, with an ideal balance of clay, sand, and organic matter. However, most types of soil can produce a satisfactory crop with a bit of tending. Turn your soil over with a spade or tiller and mix in some compost or manure to enrich the soil and keep moisture in. Make sure your soil pH is between 6.0 and 7.5, as this is optimum for carrot growth. If you’re not sure of your soil’s pH, have it tested.
Now you’re ready to plant your carrot seeds. Plant them outdoors after the last frost, making sure each seed is covered with 1/4-1/2 inch of soil. Space the seeds one inch apart in rows that are 18-24 inches apart. You will need to thin them to the appropriate distance (1-2 inches apart) when seedlings reach 3-4 inches tall. To prevent pests and diseases, rotate your carrot crop to a different location in your garden every year.
Carrots don’t require much water, but regular and consistent watering is essential for producing a good crop. Water deeply and evenly, aiming for 1-2 inches of water per week. If you allow the soil to dry out completely they will become woody and taste bitter.
Carrots will mature in 65-80 days, depending on their type and the weather. You can start to harvest them when they reach a size you find useful. Store them in a cool, dry spot and eat them within a few weeks.
With the right techniques and a bit of know-how, you can produce a satisfying and nutritious harvest of carrots right in your own garden. Go forth and put your green thumb to work!
