too many?

Is it ever possible to have too many carrots? We think not.

Tough to grow in the summer as it is just too hot. They are unhappy sweating it out. At least the nonhybrids we grow. But at the end of summer we put seeds in by the thousands. In the warm weather with enough moisture they will germinate. With proper spacing they will fill in a bed. With a couple of cool nights they will sweeten to the best carrot flavor of the year.

I visited Landreth Seeds a few weeks ago. Bought almost every variety of carrot they had in stock and have been steady getting them into the vegetable beds. Lots and lots have sprouted and now are growing their frilly foliage. And we hope some deep rooted, sweet and tender carrots.
