Bugs Bunny loved his carrots and he did not have to go to the store to get them. And you do not have to either.
Starting today, you can grow your own from the comfort of your home.
While it may sound a little weird, it is easy to do. To get started you are going to need a container at least 12 inches deep.
Fill the pot half way with a rich-soil. Try to avoid gardening soil because it could contain a disease that could be harmful to your carrots.
Next it is time to plant the carrot seeds. You should place them two inches apart and put them about a 1/4 of an inch deep in the soil. Make sure that soil is loose between the seeds so it gives them room to grow.
After you get the seeds in place, be sure to sprinkle water over the soil. Be sure not to over water the plants because it could cause the soil could shift and stunt the development of the seeds by pushing them down even more than they should be.
When it comes to watering, be sure to do it every time the soil is dry to the touch.
Finally, for the carrots to grow, you will need to place the container where there is a lot of sun in your home.
Be sure to read the package of seeds to find out when you can start harvesting the carrots and making things like carrot cake and of course everything healthy.
