Plant: Seeds are tiny and should be sown directly in the garden beginning early in the spring with just enough soil to anchor them. Loose fertile soil is best. Successive plantings can be made every 2-3 weeks.

Harvest: Pull when carrots are sufficient size and color.

Your Health: Good source of fiber, potassium and vitamin A.
