A lovely assortment of the root veggie our gardening gurus like to call "soil candy", a fresh crop of carrots is a vibrant, sweet treat.

Carrots are best grown from seeds sown directly into sunny, well-prepared beds. If the soil in your garden is heavy or rocky, carrots may be stunted, misshapen, or forked. Grow carrots in a raised bed or in a container for best results.
Tip: Interplant carrots with onions to deter pests.
