The Carrots Are Coming

In a way, I'd almost forgotten about the carrots.  Once they sprout and prove they are there, they're pretty quiet.  I kept them watered and weeded.  The other day, I was packing our lunches when I realized I didn't have any more raw veggies in the refrigerator.  I went out to check on the kohlrabis and realized, I hadn't checked the carrots!  Look at these beauties.  They are Torro Hybrid (Nantes Type). 


  1. Oh, I love carrots dipped in ranch dressing!

  2. Beautiful! I'm so envious - mine must be in some hard-packed clay this year; they are pushing themselves up out of the ground.

  3. Awesome! I don't think I've ever successfully grown carrots.

  4. They look great. I love carrots almost any way you can use them, salads, cooked, in cakes and just plain raw.

  5. I have never tried to grow carrots, your's look great!! Yum--Right now we are picking cukes--my first tomato yesterday--and apricots from a coworker tonight--MMMM good!! And, I would be thrilled if you would ship me a bouncing betty, maybe we could swap something out!!

    I've had that happen some years. I'm not sure why.

    My mom's never had luck with them but so far so good in my garden.

    Carrots are my husbands favorite it seems.


    For me the hard part about growing carrots is not weeding the patch for fear of pulling the sprouts out. They look like dill or some other weeds. Your cukes are way ahead of mine and what a treat to get apricots.


  7. Lovely carrots and I am jealous! Mine are only about 2 inches high right now!
    When do you start planting?

    I think I planted them in early April. I planted more in late April. They are still small.

  9. They look so great! I don't think we've ever gotten carrots that big.
