Variety: Early Nantes
Direct Sown: 12th April 2013
First Seedling: 28th April 2013
Germination: 16 days
The Early Nantes which were sown inside, in seed trays, didn’t do very well, unlike the Giant Red and so this post is being rewritten to cover the direct sown seeds.
At 4.5 weeks old, the seedlings stand between 1 to 2 inches tall. Unfortunately, look closely and you’ll see a squatter posing for a picture as well!
At 7 weeks old these carrots are doing very well and the tallest of them are around 4 to 5 inches tall. I have had to thin these out quite a lot and had no gaps to fill with fresh seeds.
Now 2.5 months old, there are nice finger sized carrots under the ground which we have been able to pick and use.
