I harvested the rest of my carrots this week. I should have done this weeks ago. Some of the carrots got way too big, started to get lots of hairy roots, and some were quite disfigured. Because I waited so long to pull them they don't have the sweet flavor I love from baby carrots. Instead I have chopped them up and frozen then in smaller batches for pot roasts and stews this winter. This was my first year for carrots. I am not sure if I will do them again next year. Sowing the seeds was easy but thinning was a little tedious. I also have a hard time knowing when to pull them since you can't monitor their progress in the ground.
