I finally got around to planting carrots last night. After doing a little research online I discovered you need to plant carrot seeds about 10 -12 weeks BEFORE your first frost date. You can find out your first frost date HERE. Mine is around mid November. So, about 10 weeks away.
I’m not sure if it’s too late in the season or not, but I am going to give it a try. I’ve never tried to grow carrots this late, so I am hoping it works. If not, I suppose we’ll go back to buying those giant 10 pound bags of carrots over the winter and spring months at Costco again like we do every year.
But if it works… I’ll save be able to save some serious dough.
What do you think? Will I be able to grow carrots? Have you ever planted carrots this late in the year? How did it work out?
If you are thinking about growing vegetables this winter, Amazon currently has Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long By Eliot Coleman on sale for $16.47. I own a copy and it has a bunch of useful information in it.
