This is how I'm growing my Carrots this year. Learned it by accident last year. The post has a great tutorial. Wish I had it before my trial and error method :O) I might actually be able to grow carrots without critters eating them first if I do this!
Use toilet paper rolls to start your plants Carrots are simple to sprout in any container deep enough to accommodate the roots. Starting carrot seeds indoors is an easy way to protect seedlings and get a head start on spring planting.
