Yay, CC, nice carrots!  And Yolos, love the picture.  Growing in the south sure sounds challenging. 

I got my carrots planted this weekend.  The hardest part of carrots, for me, is getting them to sprout.  I've come up with a system.  I put them in my 2x3 foot, 6 inch tall top hat, water well, then top the whole top hat with an old storm window.  Once I see some babies coming up, I remove the window.  That way, they A) stay moist and B) don't get washed away by rain!  It seems like every time I plant carrots, we get hard heavy rain right afterwards.  This method helps a lot!

Of course, the window creates a lot of nice warm sheltered soil that ants just love Mad So I usually have to kick them out a few times.  If it's not one thing it's another, eh?

I planted my seeds too close and now am thinning like crazy.  it has rained a lot so they are easy to pull out overcoming my reluctance to thin.

Now - how do I put this here and also in Hawaii group?  I swear I get dumber every day.

"Copy" what you wrote, then bring up your Hawaiian topic. Select Reply and then paste. I have done that when I'm talking about a topic and then want to post in Northern Cal.

My carrots looked like Kate's last year.  Trying again this year.  I think these are "Burpee", can't remember more than that.  Supposed to be about 6" carrots.  Got a couple squares coming up, probably need a little thinning.
