How to Plant and Grow Carrots

Growing carrots in your backyard vegetable garden or in containers on a porch or patio doesn’t have to be difficult. 

Carrots are also a well-loved vegetable, even for the pickiest of eaters. Their bright colors and sweet taste make them a joy to grow for kids and adults alike. 

Why grow carrots at home

Carrots grow well in the cooler months (not cold) of spring and fall. They don’t do well in the blazing hot sun of the summer, so be warned.
