Preparing Your Soil 

When planting carrots, be sure to to till your soil finely. The soil should not have rocks, hard clumps, or bark in it. The best way for carrot roots to thrive, is by planting your seeds in fine, well drained soil.

Pruning Your Weeds 

After 3-4 week your carrots will begin to appear. Once they are 4 inches tall, prune the leaves sprung from the main root. This will ensue your carrot grows longer and healthier.
