Thinning Carrots?

Post  Cielo's Garden on Tue 6 Apr - 13:53

Is it necessary to thin carrots? I have about 7-8 inches of green tops with no obvious root development. I planted a pinch of seed in 9 holes - do I need to thin in order to get carrots??

Yes you do, or you'll end up with a gnarly, tangled mess. I usually wait till they're 2 inches tall, so each plant is easier to distinguish, then thin with scissors.

Thanks do I just cut them at stem? Is pulling them out not a good idea?
