Unorthadox Carrots: Update

IMG_9084 IMG_9090

I’ve transplanted the carrots I started in seed-starters and posted about several weeks ago.  You can see in the picture above  that the seedling already has a well-developed tap root running straight down the root-ball.  I planted a dozen carrot seedlings in a dappled sun bed in the back yard about 2 weeks ago.  I also mulched the bed with some home-made worm compost, and leaves from our oak tree, and installed a drip line for irrigation.  They’re still all there and going strong!  They must have been big enough that the critters couldn’t eat them down to the ground.  I’ll post more updates as I have them.
