The Great Carrot Experiment....
I got carrots to germinate and grow well this last spring, but have not had any luck so far in the fall raised beds. So here is what I did for the fall. (it is probably too late, but that is ok, I will cover them with a low tunnel.
I got some egg cartons and cut the top off the carton, put coconut coir where the eggs would go, sowed the seed, then put them in a plastic bag, got them to germinate, then immediately put them outside under a little shelter I made with a dark screen over it (like what would go on a screen door) to harden them off.
They are still under the screen, I am going to keep them there for a week, raising and lowering the screen.
Then I plan on planting transferring them VERY CAREFULLY in the ground.
I am thinking this should work, what does everyone else think? If this works I am repeating it for the fall.
