I have trouble growing carrots, my carrots are very sparse. I am sure I saw more last week and now they don't appear to be there. Any ideas. Has anyone else experienced this? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. This is the third season that I have had this problem. I also put radish seeds in with my carrot seed when I plant, that way I can clearly see where they are.

Well I replanted my carrots and covered the entire box with screen from a screen door, kept them nice and moist and a new batch of carrots has emerged!:) I am going to leave the screen on for a few weeks and today put fine ground glass between each row in case of a ground attack from slugs!:)

Here is a great article on growing carrots (http://www.squidoo.com/growing-great-carrots) you might find helpful. Also don't underestimate the importance of quality seeds (http://www.seedshop.com/vegetable-seeds-carrots.html).

Thanks for sharing, I always wanted to grow carrots. Does anyone know how long it will take?
