I seeded this bed with fall carrots about 6 weeks ago. I thought it would be perfect in the dappled shade to grow through the hot summer. I left one lettuce plant that I’ve gotten three cuttings from so far.
What? You’re wondering where the carrots are?
Well, here are three.
And here are four more. Hmmm, you think that’ll keep us in carrots during autumn?
Yeah, it’s a great big “fall carrot fail.” I find carrots so iffy – sometimes they take off and fill the bed and I can’t thin them fast enough and other times…well, seven come up. I’m pretty sure I use the same soil, prep it similar, and fertilize the same, and yet I get such variable germination. Sigh.
Anyone else starting to think about a fall garden?
