    1. Sow Seeds

    Sow seed in the garden, a raised bed or container in light-textured soil that is easy to penetrate with a garden trowel. Amend ground soil with homemade or bagged compost and remove any clods. Sprinkle the tiny carrot seed over the surface of the soil and then cover with 1/8-inch of a light seed starting mix.
    2. Fertilize

    Avoid overfeeding carrots with nitrogen, as too much of this nutrient causes abundant top growth and forking of roots. Once the plant reaches 1-inch tall, feed once a month with an organic fertilizer high in phosphorus, which promotes root growth.
    3. Water

    Keep carrot soil evenly moist at all times. Carrot seeds quickly die if allowed to dry out, and carrots will become tough and crack when exposed to drought. Protect sprouting seeds from drying out, which can occur quickly during Santa Ana winds, by covering with wet burlap or newspapers until the seeds sprout. Mist the carrot tops of carrot plants during windy conditions.
    4. Harvest

    Harvest initially by thinning carrots to 2 inches apart. Eat the entire baby carrot, foliage and all. Thereafter, you can begin harvesting carrots when they reach finger size. The smaller the carrot, the more tender it will be.
    5. Special requirements

    Carrots must be planted by seed. They require a light soil that drains well. If carrots run into any obstructions when growing, they will become distorted and stunted. If your soil is not light, plant baby carrots, or use containers or raised beds.
    6. Special requirements

    Carrots must be planted by seed. They require a light soil that drains well. If carrots run into any obstructions when growing, they will become distorted and stunted. If your soil is not light, plant baby carrots, or use containers or raised beds.
