This year I added carrots to my new explorations. I’ve never had the space or sun before to grow them properly….and honestly, I sometimes forget about root vegetables. But it looks as if the carrots are ready. It’s best to pull carrots only as you are ready to eat them. A happy side to carrots, like lettuces and broccoli, is that they can be sown a second time. Best done in July, the shade from taller plants will help them from getting too hot. They take about two months to mature. Carrots will benefit from a frost, making them sweeter! Even though it is the 1st of August, I’m going to get a second sowing underway.
