What are the pros? Plant and harvest
What are the cons? N/A
Loosely broadcast seeds in 2 rows about 12 inches apart. Did not thin young plants. Picked largest seedlings as season progressed. Good for in garden tasting or using as baby carrots eaten fresh, steamed or stir fried. Picked some that were about 2 inches in diameter at top, tapering to a rounded 1 inch diameter end. Solid throughout, very little damage in my no chemical beds. An occasional root growing horizontally out of the main root. Left three carrots to mature into fall. Picked one the other day. About 5 inches in diameter at the top and roughly 6 inches long. Beauties like this have undoubtably graced stew pots throughout Europe over the years. It is a fine specimen with good taste and no woodiness or pithiness. For Thanksgiving I am going to harvest another of the heavily mulched ones left out in the gardens, slice it crosswise, saut?e, and serve one slice each, drizzled in organic butter with a little brown sugar mixed in. This will take the place of sweet potatoes this year.
