[Video] 7 Easy Tips for Growing 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 very 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 carrots in succession for continuous harvest throughout the summer and fall. They do prefer cooler weather, so they make a great fall crop and you can even leave them in the ground into the winter as long as you harvest them before the ground freezes.

If you have heavy soil, be sure to amend it 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. You will also want to keep the soil consistently moist, as inconsistent periods of wet and dry soil can cause your carrots to split.

To harvest your carrots, loosen the soil around them with a digging fork, and then gently pull them free. If your soil is soft and loose, you may be able to pull them without any digging, but you’ll want to use a fork if your soil is dense or they may break off in the ground.

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!
