Organic Carrot Growing Directions
Organic carrots are easy to grow in your Harvest to Home garden. Simply sit back and watch them grow till they are large enough to harvest and eat. You can check the size of the carrot roots by placing your finger into the soil near the plant and feeling the size of the carrot. Once they feel large enough to your liking (7-12 inches) simply pull entire plant from the box, wash and enjoy! Essential Oil is recommended on the green leaves of the carrot plant.
