You can't beat the taste of home grown carrots. They're sweeter and more delicious than any you'll buy in the supermarket, and the good thing is that they're not difficult to grow.

Sow your seeds in rows, sprinkling them thinly about ½ an inch deep. Choose a sunny spot for them. Once the seedlings start to grow you can remove some so you're left with a row of seedlings a couple of inches apart.

They're easy to look after, they don't need much water; just keep an eye on them, if the foliage starts wilting then that's a good indication that they could do with a good dousing. Weed between your carrots so your crop isn't competing with the weeds for nutrients.

About three or four months after you plant the seeds, your carrots should be ready to harvest. If they're not huge in size don't worry as smaller carrots tend to be the tastiest anyway.

There are lots of different varieties you can experiment with, have fun and enjoy growing carrots.
