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.
