This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

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!
