It is the time of the year again, harvest the last batch of carrots. My garden is in zone 3. So that is the last frost around May 23rd and the first frost is around September 12. Some years, the first frost came early, some years came a little later. This year has been a great summer, lots of sunshine, and not much snow in around the first frost.
So, I usually harvest the last batch of carrot in November, the snow and light frost actually make it sweeter. But I decided to just dig them all and will keep them in the dark cool place.
I got a lot of carrot from my 3 ft by 4 ft garden box. I can say it would be enough until the next three month, but I shared them with my family members and friends.
Planting carrot is easy, as long as the ground is workable with plenty of compost or manure and keep the ground moist. It can grow on plant pot too if there isn’t enough space to grow it. With the number of crops we got from our raised garden box, gardening in short growing season is possible. That’s why I love free food.
