Hey, guys, pulling carrots is pretty easy and kind of fun, too! These carrots were planted from one of our veggie mix cards (like the one above) and grew right here in our office. So let's start the carrot pulling...
To start, check out your carrots for maturity, mature carrots have deep green leaves and a large orange top of their root is developed. Water and loosen dirt 4-6 inches away from the base (a fork works great). Pull from the base of the foliage careful not to break the stem or roots. And there you have it...a bundle of carrots just in time for lunch!
So yep, it's that easy and super fun to see what you pull out -- here's our crazy container grown carrots. Each has it's own shape, size and personality (kind of cute, huh?).
Check back in a few weeks for our follow-up blog on how to regrow your carrot greens... that is, if you carrot all ;) Now, what's for lunch? Carrots dipped in hummus -- we think. Uhm, yes please ~ yum!
