Harvest: Make carrots easier to unearth by sprinkling water on the soil to make it moist. Pull carrots out by their tops using a gentle twisting motion. In areas with colder winter seasons, carrots can be kept in the ground after first frost, but should be harvested before the ground completely freezes.
Special Instructions/Tips: When plants have 7-10 leaves, create 1-2 inch high hills of soil around the crown to prevent green shoulders.
