How to grow carrots

Carrots. This vegetable is loaded with vitamins, taste good, help to control your weight, good for your skin and blood.

There are a few ways of planting carrot home garden seeds. But before planting them don’t forget to prepare soil. Work it deeply adding some compost or peat moss. Try to remove stones as in may affect downward formation of the roots.

Carrot seeds are one of the smallest of home garden seeds and it is important to thin the seedlings before crowding impairs their growth. There are two tricks you can use:
1) You can add several scoops of fresh coffee grounds to the mixture. It will help you space the carrot seeds by increasing the volume you have to pick up. The grounds will also help repel pests, as well as help fertilize the soil.
2) Also you can add some radish home garden seeds to the mixture. The radishes will sprout first, so you will be able to see where your rows are. It will also help you space the carrots out more when you cultivate them.

After the carrot home garden seeds have germinated, I recommend you to thin them to two inches apart.

Keep them well weeded early in the season. Carrots are easily overcrowded, and weeds usually winning out.

They also need a good supply of water, in soil that drains well. They respond well to fertilizer applied prior to sowing carrot seeds, and a couple of times during the season.

Carrots are ready to pick approximately 65 to 75 days, depending upon their sort.

I wish I could be read better in Spanish, but I found a great site that will be of help with my veggies. Most tutoring net companies just sell netting and have no real expertise in agriculture. Hortomallas has a great library available to farmers as tutora means tutor as referred to a plant. I ran into this site by mere chance as I was trying to find the ideal product to tutor my backyard vegetables, and did not know that using netting reduces viruses and fungi. I will try now to go 100% organic!
