How to Grow Carrots
For all the mileage Tumblr gets out of lush landscapes and macro shots, sometimes all I really want is a simple how-to. I like to consider myself a skill collector—it’s like collecting anything else, only you’re more interesting at parties and get to play the hero when the car breaks down. And this kind of Renaissance savvy goes for gardening, too. Vegetable gardens in particular.
A Way to Garden's Margaret Roach was kind enough to reach out to a specialist when it came to her readers' biggest quandary: successfully growing carrots. For such common fare, they're not as easy to get right as new gardeners might expect. But by following a few guidelines, you'll not only be pulling perfect carrots, but carrots of a few different varieties at that. —MN
