How to grow organic carrots

Carrots are a delicious addition to your garden, and they’re quite easy to grow! Here are a few helpful tips for growing organic carrots.

Sweet, crunchy, and super healthy, carrots should be a staple in any gardener’s garden, regardless of whether you grow in containers or in the ground.

Carrots are quite easy to grow, and generally suffer from few problems, so they are great for organic gardens. They come in a wide variety of interesting colors and shapes, and if you have kids, they will especially love trying some of these alternatives!

You can plant them in succession for continuous harvest throughout the summer and fall. If you have heavy soil, be sure to amend with plenty of compost, dig well, and remove any rocks. This will help prevent your carrots from forking. Or you can grow them in containers filled with potting soil. Just be sure to keep them well-watered, as carrots tend to bolt if they get too dry.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
