This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

carrots

Copy of IMG_9757 I looked up the cause for carrots splitting - uneven watering. I didn't know that. I suppose its not bad to have only one split carrot in the bunch. But I have lots of bifurcated carrots. Hmmm. Rocky soil. I'll keep working on that. They all tasted great.

It may not be uneven watering. Could be that you need to loosen the soil down to a deeper level. I add coarse vermiculite to my carrot beds. This year we grew Purple Dragon and Danver's Carrots. Both great choices!
